Call for possible measles contacts to come forward and contact Healthline.

Health New Zealand | Te Whatu Ora is asking for people who are currently in New Zealand but who travelled in February on international flights to Melbourne, Australia from Dubai, and Singapore, to come forward and contact Healthline immediately on 0800 611 116. 

This is in response to Australian health authorities confirming to Health New Zealand / Te Whatu Ora that confirmed measles cases on two flights in February.

Latest information about flights and other relevant information can be found on Te Whatu Ora’s Locations of Interest page.
We are asking anyone who travelled on those flights to contact Healthline immediately and to stay home until they receive advice from public health services.  Contacts may already be developing symptoms of measles, so it is important to contact Healthline urgently.
If you wish to speak with the practice nurse, please call us here at Amuri Health Centre on 03 31 6328.
