NZ COVID Tracer app

The NZ COVID Tracer app has now recorded 380,000 registrations – that’s an increase of 17,000 since 5pm on Sunday.

We continue to encourage as many people as possible to download the app – it will help us identify, trace, test and isolate any cases of COVID-19.

The Ministry is also very supportive of the work done by businesses to get their unique QR codes up and running, with 13,600 posters having been created as of midday.

If people are having issues with the app, we want to know so we can get the problems fixed.

The Ministry website has lots of FAQs about the app, and you can report issues by freephone or email.
