Dear primary care colleagues
As you will know, when there are community cases of COVID-19 the Ministry of Health announces any ‘locations of interest’ on its web site. These are places where the cases have visited while infectious and other people may have been exposed. The web site also contains information and advice for these people, appropriate to their exposure. As the advice often changes depending on the specific situation, we recommend that this web site is consulted to obtain the correct, up to date information for your patients if required.
The locations of interest and advice for others who were present are also loaded onto the Ministry’s website, here:
If a patient thinks they may have been at a location of interest within the time specified and asks for advice, please check this site in the first instance. It is regularly updated.
We would be grateful if you shared this information with any patient facing staff.
Ministry of Health
