A case reported on Friday of the Rotorua based MIQ worker who tested positive on Wednesday has now been confirmed to have the Delta variant.

The Ministry of Health say they are thought to be more likely to have acquired their infection in the community.

The Ministry again encourages anyone who lives in, or has visited, the Lakes district, particularly in Rotorua, with symptoms – no matter how mild – to book in a test, even if you’re vaccinated and to please stay at home until you return a negative test result. 

The Ministry is also asking anyone in the region who is yet to be vaccinated to please make a booking now.

Testing and vaccination centre locations nationwide can be found on the Healthpoint website
