Contact tracing on campus: NZ COVID Tracer app

Wednesday 22 September 2021

Alert Level 3 (Auckland)

Activities on our Auckland campuses are severely limited, with only essential staff, and staff and students specifically authorised to access campus being allowed to do so. If you do not have permission to be on campus under Alert Level 3, please stay at home.

Approved essential staff, and staff and students specifically authorised to access our Auckland campuses: You must keep track of where you have been by continuing to use the Government’s NZ COVID Tracer app with Bluetooth turned on, when on and moving about campus.

This is one way we can all continue to play our part in keeping ourselves, students, colleagues and the wider University community safe. Remember, both actions are important for contact tracing.

You’ll find NZ COVID Tracer QR code posters at University building entrances, at cafes on campus, in student areas and in many teaching spaces. Our campuses are large areas so scanning at the different places you may visit on campus will assist in more precise contact tracing if required.


If you spot a poster that needs replacing or changing, or an area that requires a QR Code, please let us know at coronavirus@auckland.ac.nz.

For more information on the NZ COVID Tracer app and how to turn on Bluetooth, refer to the Government’s NZ COVID Tracer app page.
