Mask wearing is only required in healthcare settings such as hospitals, pharmacies, primary care, aged residential and disability-related residential care. People may still be asked to wear a mask in some places but it will be at the discretion of those managing the location, not a government requirement. For Thames-Coromandel District Council it means there is no requirement to wear masks in any of our public spaces such as Council offices and libraries. People who test positive for COVID-19 must still isolate for seven days, but household contacts are no longer required to isolate, provided they take a RAT test every day. All government vaccine mandates end on 26 September 2022. For more information, visit the government's COVID response website.
