Get tested in Taranaki

Taranaki DHB continues to test for COVID-19 in the region. The more testing we do of people with symptoms, the more confidence we’ll have there are no people with a COVID-19 infection in Taranaki. Early detection saves lives.

Symptoms of COVID-19 are similar to a range of other illnesses such as cold and flu. Shortness of breath is a sign of possible pneumonia and requires immediate medical attention.

Symptoms of COVID-19 include:

  • a cough
  • a high temperature (at least 38°C)
  • shortness of breath
  • sore throat
  • sneezing and runny nose
  • temporary loss of smell.

Having any of these symptoms does not necessarily mean you have COVID-19, but please self-isolate and get tested straight away even if you have a sniffle or a slight sore throat. It is best to be on the safe side. Stay at home until you have been well for at least 48 hours and your test is negative.
