- Have food, parcel or deliveries left on the doorstep. See the contact less service areas for providers and support in your area.
- When self-isolating, it is not an opportunity to meet up with others that are self-isolating.
- Sleeping arrangement when home self isolating. Sleep alone and ensure you keep two metres away from anyone that lives with you. It is very hard to prevent transmission between people who live together, flatmates or young children and babies. If maintaining this distance is too difficult, try and find a self isolation house using our self-isolation rentals and accommodation directory.
Here are some NZ self isolation rules?
Home self-isolation means taking simple, yet common-sense steps to avoid close contact with others. This helps you protect your family and community from the further spreading of the COVID-19 / coronavirus or other common infectious diseases.
Avoid having visitors to your home. But you may still need support and food supplies. It is fine if friends, neighbours family, delivery or courier drivers drop off food and supplies. They could leave these at your door and watch from a distance as you take these items indoors.
You should definitely not share crockery, cutlery, dishes, drinking glasses, cups, bath towels, sleeping pillows or other items with other people that live in your home whilst you are is self-isolation.
Washing all items thoroughly, preferably using a dishwasher or washing machine is ideal.
