Wellington locations of interest

We are continuing to advise people who live in Wellington or were in the region between Saturday 19 June and Monday 21 June to check the locations of interest page following the visit by an Australian tourist who subsequently tested positive for COVID-19.

People who have been at these locations of interest at the specified time should immediately isolate at their home or accommodation and call Healthline (0800 358 5453) for advice on testing.

This testing data does not include the number of tests processed by Waikato DHB, as systems remain down as a result of the cyber attack. The Waikato data continues to be recorded manually and monitored. The data will be added to the tally once systems have been restored.

The manual data shows Waikato has this week been processing about 400 tests a day.
