Further advice on Wellington Airport and Te Papa locations of interest

Two Tauranga contacts of the visitor from Sydney to Wellington last weekend, who tested positive for COVID-19 after returning to Australia, have this afternoon returned negative tests.

This means all four close contacts of the visitor identified last evening have now returned initial negative tests. This includes two contacts in Palmerston North, whose results were announced earlier.

Locations of interest

Further locations of interest, including Wellington Airport, have been published on the Ministry of Health website:

Public health officials have determined that only those seated in the foodcourt at Wellington Airport between 8.30am and 9.55am on Monday 21 June need to stay at home, get a test around Day 5 after last exposure and remain at home until negative test result is received.

All other people at Wellington Airport between 8.30am and 10.30am on Monday 21 June should self-monitor for COVID symptoms for 14 days. If symptoms develop, get tested and stay at home until negative test result is received.

People at the other large exposure site, Te Papa, between 3:05pm and 5:45pm on Saturday 19 June are advised to stay at home, get a test around Day 5 after last exposure and remain at home until a negative test result is received.
