No new cases today, public urged to keep up the good work

Nelson Marlborough Medical Officer of Health Dr Andrew Lindsay said people in Nelson Marlborough still have an opportunity in Phase One to slow the spread and impact of the virus by vaccinating sooner rather than later.

“We are still in Phase One, ‘stamp it out’. We have cases in the community who are in isolation. This allows time for people to become fully vaccinated and protected from the virus.

“We have a short window of opportunity before community cases are expected to become widespread.

“We are very thankful people are protecting themselves, their whānau and the wider community. But this is no time to wait. We need to get as many people as possible boosted and vaccinated before we see numbers escalate.
