Preparing for COVID-19 On-Farm

Checklist for Farmers

It’s important you have a plan to ensure your farm can continue to operate if you, an employee, or a family member contracts COVID-19. You may be required to leave your property quickly.

Having a plan will help give you peace of mind that others will be able to step in and help.

This document is intended to help you create a plan in the event you are required to leave your property and are unable to look after your animals, staff and business. The detail contained in your plan is unique to your own property and circumstances to allow family, friends or neighbours to come in and tend to the immediate needs of your livestock.

In the situation that a COVID-19 positive case or close contact be located on your farm, it will also help the Ministry of Health decide the best place for you and those around you to isolate. Having the right information and a plan could help you or your staff stay on farm.
