Niner Health Check
Once you are vaccinated and submit your COVID-19 vaccine reporting form and it is approved, you are no longer required to complete the daily health check unless you become symptomatic or are identified through contract tracing as a close contact. However, you will continue to receive the email in case you need it. Just delete it if you don’t.
If you are not vaccinated you will need to continue completing the daily health check as before. Failure to complete the health check regularly will result in a loss of NinerNet credentials.
