COVID-19 and Mackenzie District

COVID 19 Logo

The Mackenzie District is at Orange (COVID Protection Framework)

Please follow the COVID Protection Framework advice.

To everyone who lives in the Mackenzie District or plans to visit, please get vaccinated, tested if sick, and plan ahead. Protect yourself and wear a mask, and please protect our community and health care system.

If people get ill with COVID-19, most will be cared for at home with support from Primary Care teams where applicable. If hospital care is required, the main hospital for the South Canterbury area, Timaru Hospital, will take patients, and have ICU support available.
