Auckland partygoers are being told to self-isolate and get tested after Covid-19 cases visited three popular bars over the weekend.
An Auckland bar, nightclub, cafe and a retail store are among the latest Covid-19 locations of interest released by health authorities this afternoon.
People who were at Auckland CBD’s AV Club or Family Bar and Club, or seated inside at Half Moon Bay’s Ara-Tai Cafe during the relevant times listed below are deemed close contacts and need to self-isolate and get a test immediately.
Ponsonby’s Longroom has also been added to the list and was visited by a case on Saturday between 7pm and 9pm.
In a post to social media, Longroom said the individual was outside in the courtyard during their stay and the venue will remain open.
The Ministry of Health says impacted people need to get a test on day 5 after the point of exposure while further health isolation and testing requirements would be provided by public health officials.
Customers that were seated outside at Half Moon Bay’s Ara-Tai Cafe at the relevant time are considered casual contacts and are asked to self-monitor for Covid-19 symptoms for 10 days after they were potentially exposed.
Noel Leeming on Queen St has also been listed as a location of interest, with those at the store at the relevant times asked to self-monitor for Covid-19 symptoms for 10 days – and get a test and stay at home if symptoms develop.
