Following the announcement of 55 new Covid cases in the community, Northland and Waikato will remain in alert level 3 for a further 5 days
Covid Response Minister Chris Hipkins noted that there still wasn’t confidence in the Covid situation in Northland, due to the reluctance of sharing information from the positive cases who visited the region.
He said they were providing “very little information” about where they’d been when traveling throughout Northland.
The Waikato will stay in level 3 due to two unlinked cases. “We don’t have yet a full understanding of who might be involved in the chain of transmission there.”
Northland & Waikato will remain in Alert Level 3 until 11.59PM on Monday, October 18
