Your information will be held by Auckland Regional Public Health Service, other Public Health Units and the Ministry of Health.

We will need to share information with others involved in controlling COVID-19, such as your doctor, other health services, and the Ministry of Health. We will only share information for the purpose of controlling COVID-19 and no other reason. 

Some information may be made public, like any places and events you have been to. This is to help find people who may have had contact with you. Your personal information will not be shared publicly.

Your information is protected under the Health Information Privacy Code and other law.

If you wish, you can access your health information. You can ask for it to be corrected if you think it is wrong or misleading.

You can direct any concerns about the privacy of your health information to the District Health Board Privacy Officer or the Office of the Privacy Commissioner

The information we ask you for is important to control the spread of COVID-19. If you do not provide that information, controlling COVID-19 may be more difficult. Sometimes, we can require you to supply us with the information under the Health Act.
