Report your RAT test result whether positive or negative

  • Reporting a positive test not only helps health officials monitor the outbreak, it is also important if you or your whānau require additional healthcare services
  • Reporting a negative test is important because it helps health officials better understand how the outbreak is circulating through our households and communities
  • A weak positive is still a positive. Even if the test line is faint, you have COVID-19 and could be infectious.
To report your result, log in to your My Covid Record account at mycovidrecord.nz or call 0800 222 478 and choose option 3.
Keep yourself, your whānau and others safe: always report your results.
