All tradies can work as normal, so long as they follow the health & safety guidelines.

Above all else, get vaccinated and stay isolated from others if you feel sick. If you think you have COVID-19 symptoms call Healthline on 0800 358 5453. Get My Vaccine Pass.

1. Government support for tradies affected by COVID-19

The NZ Government has financial support available for businesses affected by COVID-19. Visit the website for more information.

2. Contact tracing tips for tradies

Businesses will be asked to provide the following contact information for the people an infected person has come into contact with. You will be required to keep this data for 14 days.

  • Date
  • Time
  • Name
  • Address
  • Phone number
  • Email address

Sounds like a lot of information to keep on top of? You’re not wrong. To ensure your daily interactions are up to date we recommend keeping accurate timesheets. These should ideally be updated at the end of every work session/job you complete.

3. Tradify helps you contact trace

While Tradify already handles timesheets with ease, we also have a Contact Tracing Report. This report lets you see which customers and staff any member of your team has been in contact with. This on-demand report is created through information entered in timesheets or the Scheduler. When required, you will be able to filter by date to view the critical information you may be asked to provide to authorities (date, time, name, contact details).
