An Otago Covid-19 Welfare Helpline has been established to help make sure everyone in the region receives the support they need during the Alert Level 4 lockdown.
While people are encouraged to contact the appropriate agency for help in the first instance, anyone in Otago who needs assistance in relation to emergency food, household goods/services or any other welfare-type requests can call 0800 322 4000.
The helpline number will operate daily from 7am until 7pm.
