Counties Manukau District Health Board chief executive Margie Apa has detailed for Newshub how the health system plans to cope with the holidays and COVID-19 cases. For people on medication, she told Checkpoint it would be helpful to have prescriptions on hand to avoid getting caught out. “Pack things that are going to be helpful to you; I’d include masks, hand sanitisers,” Apa said. But if anyone found themselves to have caught COVID-19 on holiday, she said: “Isolate yourself quickly and call Healthline.”
