Here you will find information and resources for whānau Māori to reduce the risk of COVID19 for you and your whānau.
This information has been gathered and approved by our leading Māori health professionals.
COVID-19 is a new illness that can affect your lungs and airways.
It’s caused by a type of virus called a coronavirus.
COVID-19 is a serious issue for our whānau Māori.
COVID 19 continues to be a serious illness all over the world. Many more people are dying and there are new strains of the disease developing as more and more people are getting infected.
Kia Mataara - COVID-19 could be a serous issue for our whānau Maori, if we do not take care.
Most importantly we must take a NOTE of where we have been, and still do the things that we have been doing since March 2020.
Wash your hands regularly
Stay home if you are māuiui
Keep 2m social distancing
Wear a mask if traveling on a plane
It is really important that we all take a note of where we have been so that if there is a case of community transmission then contacts of the case can be quickly and easily tracked .
Taking a note of where you have been is easy:
Scan the QR codes using the COVID – 19 App
There is function on the app where you can manually record where you have been – very useful for places that don’t have a QR code
Take a selfie on your phone or
simply write a note recording where you have been and the date
Not matter where we are living, the most important thing is that you are vigilant and continue to keep yourself, your whānau and all those you love and care about safe and healthy.
Kia kaha, kia maia, kia manawanui, kia mataara.
