The COVID-19 Testing Plan is informed by COVID-19 Modelling Aotearoa, and what has happened overseas. It provides the framework to support decisions about when and who to test for COVID-19 in Aotearoa New Zealand.
The COVID-19 Testing Plan is structured in three sections:
- The Purpose of Testing (diagnostic, surveillance and asymptomatic screening)
- A Testing Response Framework (including testing advice under low, medium and high transmission)
- Settings Based Advice
The Testing Plan also includes seven appendices; each one is a guidance document focused on a particular health care setting.
