For assistance with medical appointments impacted by the flood/road closures/isolation please contact the Nelson Marlborough Health Patient Travel Coordinator via email Patient.Travel@nmdhb.govt.nz or by phone 03 546 1800 to get support with your medical needs.
The Public Health Service recommends people on their own water supply, who are affected by flooding, to boil their water. Flood water can contain bugs that can make people sick.
Further advice about treating your drinking water can be found at the HeathEd and ESR websites.
It is recognised that there are health implications associated with impacted communities, so people are advised to take precautions.
If you are experiencing vomiting or diarrhoea symptoms, please contact your local GP, or call Healthline on 0800 611 116
