What Code YELLOW means
Code Yellow means Covid-19 is contained but the risk of community transmission is growing.
The escalating threat of pandemic COVID-19 outside our borders, in particular New Zealand, now call for us to move to Code Yellow as part of our national emergency response, even though we do not have any confirmed COVID-19 cases in the Cook Islands.
Preventative measures implemented early in an epidemic can slow the transmission of infection and reduce the peak number of cases. We're aiming to flatten the curve and slow the spread of the disease.
Health officials are encouraging anyone requiring medical advice or attention to call 0800 1800 or 0800 1801 or 0800 1802. All calls to the Healthline are free of charge.
This website has been created to be the official and direct source for Cook Islands COVID-19 updates. These challenging times require all of us to work collaboratively together.
