Several health and community providers have joined forces to create a website-based Covid-19 information hub for locals and visitors to the Mangawhai region over the summer holidays.
The website (www.mangawhaicovidresponse.co.nz) offers locals and visitors information on where they can be tested for Covid and what to do if they test positive. In addition, the website contains a number of helpful guides such as preparing for a period of isolation.
Te Whai Community Trust project manager Kiri Eriwata says with the opening of borders, providers want whānau in the community to prepare themselves when positive cases enter the area.
“The motivation behind the website is to have as much key information relevant to the Mangawhai community in one place to save having to search across multiple platforms,” she says.
The website, and its corresponding social media channels, will be managed by a skeleton staff over the Christmas and New Year period to ensure that anyone that has any queries or concerns can be assisted, or put in contact with a relevant service provider.
