More than 100 locations have been identified as potential Covid exposure sites across all areas of Auckland, with the latest now stretching as far south as Manukau.
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, East and most recently South Auckland.
The new locations include Hirepool Equipment Hire in Papatoetoe, One Stop Mechanical andJ. A. Russell Ltd in Mt Wellington.
It also includes a string of shops at Westfield Albany, the Botany town centre bus stop and Coyle Park in Pt Chevalier.
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.
More than 50 new locations of interest have been added today.
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.
Household members of a person who has been at a location of interest are advised to isolate at home until the person who was at the location receives a negative test.
