Today we are reporting 5,647 community cases, 350 hospitalisations and 3 deaths. Today’s seven-day rolling average of community case numbers is 7,510 – approximately the same as last Sunday's 7,414 reported cases.
As people return to work and other activities this week, it’s a timely reminder for people to continue to follow public health advice to stay at home and stay away from school or work if you’re feeling unwell.
Another way to protect you and your whānau is to get vaccinated if you haven’t already done so. Vaccination remains our best defence against COVID-19 and getting boosted is an important way people can protect themselves, their whānau and their friends from the virus.
