NZ COVID Tracer app

The NZ COVID Tracer app has now recorded 517,000 registrations – that’s an increase of 5,300 since this time yesterday.

We continue to encourage as many people as possible to download and use the app. This will support our contact tracing efforts including when we move to Level 1.

Similarly, businesses are encouraged to also create a unique QR code – we’ve simplified the process for this in response to feedback.

Find more details on QR codes.

The number of posters created by businesses will be updated on Monday.
