COVID-19

Updated 13th August 2020

The New Zealand Needle Exchange Programme is an essential service and continues to operate under COVID-19 restrictions.

NZNEP Outlets in Auckland are open as normal under level 3 COVID-19 restrictions.

NZNEP Outlets throughout the rest of New Zealand are open as normal under level 2 COVID-19 restrictions. 

Opening hours may be reduced if restriction levels are increased or if staff are unable to work or have to self isolate. Check here or with your local service for updates.

Please follow any instructions given by NZNEP staff to help keep everyone safe. 

As the New Zealand Needle Exchange Programme is an essential service people are able to travel to and from NZNEP locations and pharmacies to obtain equipment. 

If you need equipment but are sick, self-isolating or in quarantine we have an online store where you can purchase equipment and we will courier it to you. Visit our online store at https://shop.nznep.org.nz/

Keep safe, and make sure you wash your hands often!
