When we move out of lockdown, we’re going to visit a lot more places and bump into a lot more people. We’ve designed a handy journal template to help you track where you go and who you meet.

Once we hit alert levels 3, 2 and 1 we’ll be coming into contact with a lot more people. While freedom is exciting and our Covid case numbers are getting lower and lower, we need to be aware of where the virus might spread.

Contact tracing will be one of the key priorities going forward. Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said at a press conference on Sunday April 19 that New Zealanders need to think about all their movements “as if we may come and interview you tomorrow and try and find out who you've been with.”

“We essentially have to do forensic interviews with people to find out where they have been, who they've been in contact with, and try and trace Covid-19.”

At the moment it’s hard enough to remember what we had for dinner on Monday, so, we’ve designed this handy journal template for you to jot down where you’ve been and who you’ve seen. And because mindfulness is nice, we also chucked in a little column to note down what you’re grateful for. 

To use the template, download the PDF document here  and fill it out on your computer or phone. Or print it out and fill it by hand, if you’re old-school like that. 

Or design your own and tag us (@renewsnz) to show it off.
