Man in custody tests negative for COVID-19
A man in custody at Rotorua Police Station has tested negative for Covid-19.
He was tested for coronavirus following an event involving a threat at the Rotorua District Court yesterday.
The man had advised Police yesterday that he had recently returned from Hong Kong and was feeling unwell, a police spokesperson says.
"Rotorua Police Station, including the custody hub, will therefore be returning to business as usual operations.
"Police are in the process of notifying those staff who had self-isolated as a precaution after being in close contact with the man."
Decontamination of all sites, including the Rotorua courthouse, took place yesterday.
