Covid 19 coronavirus Delta outbreak: More than 100 locations of interest, most in Auckland

More than 100 locations have been identified as potential Covid exposure sites in the country – most in Auckland.

The latest count, as of the Ministry of Health’s updated list at 1.50pm, shows 120 locations of interest in Auckland and Coromandel.

Of those, a staggering 106 are in Auckland – including eateries, cafes, cinemas, supermarkets and warehouse outlets in the city centre, North Shore, West Auckland and East Auckland.

The latest update includes a number of Mt Wellington businesses, shops at Westfield Albany and the Botany town centre bus stop.

A number of supermarkets have been visited, such as Countdowns in Lynfield, Lincoln Rd, Birkenhead, Glenfield Mall and Takapuna, the Mt Roskill New World and a Pak’nSave on Wairau Rd.

Westfield Albany, Lynn Mall and Glenfield Mall are also on the list.

Despite some businesses being visited by a positive case more than once, health officials are treating each visit as a unique location of interest. All up, more than 90 businesses are affected.

Health officials continue to urge people – particularly those in Auckland, as well as all essential workers – to check the growing list regularly.

Anyone who has been at a location of interest at the same time as a Covid-19 positive case is immediately considered to be a close contact.

Close contacts are to self-isolate immediately for 14 days, get tested for the virus and call Healthline for other advice.
