Following the confirmation last night of a person in Katikati returning a positive COVID-19 test, additional COVID-19 testing and vaccinating will be available in the town today. The person who tested positive is isolating.

A vaccination clinic in the Katikati RSA and Citizens Club on the corner of Henry and Main Roads, will be open from 10am to 2pm today. No is booking required.

Testing sites in Katikati will be open from 8.30am today through to 4.30pm. These include the Katikati Medical Centre, and an additional site at the Katikati Rugby Clubrooms. If required, the Katikati Rugby Clubrooms site will extend the opening time. Tests are free.

Locations of interest will be posted on the Ministry of Health website once confirmed.

"We encourage people who live in Katikati, or who have visited recently, to please keep checking the website for information about the locations of interest," says a BOPDHB spokesperson.

Vaccination clinics are open across the Bay of Plenty today including walk-in sites at BayPark, 1st Avenue and various pharmacies. Information, including opening hours, is available on the Healthpoint website (www.healthpoint.co.nz).

Testing locations open on Sunday

  • Katikati Medical Centre, 4 Clive Road, 8.30am- 4.30pm
  • Katikati Rugby Clubrooms, Fairview Road, 8:30am – 4:30pm (hours will be extended if there is high-demand)
  • Tauranga Accident and HealthCare, 19 Second Avenue, 8.00am- 6.00pm

The current public health assessment is that the risk appears contained, as the person is fully vaccinated and has been a consistent user of the COVID-19 tracer app. However, if you have COVID-19 symptoms, including mild cold or flu symptoms, please get tested, or contact Healthline for advice. Healthline is available free on 0800 358 5453.

... we would have to be incredibly lucky for Tauranga to have escaped this cluster. I guess we should prepare mentally and physically for another lockdown... (Let’s hope it is short...)
