Auckland Clothing Store, Nelson Airport and Gisborne McDonald’s among new places of interest

A number of new places of interest have been released by the Department of Health, including an Auckland clothing store, Nelson Airport and a Gisborne McDonald’s.

Connor shoppers in downtown Botany in East Tamaki on Friday, January 28 between 12:15 p.m. and 10 p.m. are asked to monitor for symptoms for 10 days after potential exposure, and to get tested if symptoms occur, and stay home until they test negative.

Those at Nelson Airport on January 26 from 3-4.30pm or at Health 2000 on Trafalgar St in Nelson between 4.12-4.22pm are asked to do the same.

Another exhibition event is listed at Nelson Airport on January 28 from 6:25 a.m. to 7:45 a.m.

There are no new landmarks classified as high risk so far.

McDonald’s Gisborne, at 30 Bright St, was visited by a positive case from 6:50 p.m. to 8:45 p.m. on January 25. The people there should follow the same advice.

Hunterville Park and restrooms on January 27 are also a place of interest where people are asked to monitor symptoms for the next 10 days.

Kelly Tarlton’s aquarium has been listed several times before, with those in one section of the aquarium listed as close contacts.

The Aquarium cafe was visited by a positive case on Tuesday January 25 between 11:45 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. – anyone who was in the cafe at the same time is now classified as a close contact and must self-isolate and test immediately, then at again on day 5.

Anyone in the aquarium on the same day between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. should monitor themselves for symptoms and get tested if there are any.

It comes as 103 new community cases of the virus were recorded in New Zealand yesterday, and one new death.

The deceased was in his 60s, had a number of underlying health conditions and was receiving appropriate ward-level care at North Shore Hospital in Auckland.

New Zealanders have been told to expect the majority of new cases to be the Omicron variant, due to its high transmissibility. The number of cases is expected to double every three days.

The new locations come as Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and Governor General Dame Cindy Kiro remain in isolation after boarding a flight from Kerikeri to Auckland with a confirmed case last Saturday. Both tested negative but will remain in isolation until February 1 in accordance with Ministry of Health guidelines.
