The University of Auckland says all exams which are scheduled for Friday will now be held online.
It comes after a student at AUT, who lives and works in the Auckland CBD, tested positive for Covid-19 with health officials saying at this stage no direct source of infection has been identified.
The university said in a statement that exams on its central Auckland campuses (City, Grafton, Newmarket and Epsom) will be held online
Scheduled start times will remain the same, but the exams will run for an additional 30 minutes, the statement said.
The University confirms that all examinations scheduled to be held tomorrow, Friday 13 November, on our central Auckland campuses (City, Grafton, Newmarket and Epsom) will be held online instead. Full details on our website: https://t.co/P2Mm7UnoDe pic.twitter.com/havWUWm6sK

The university has apologised for the late notice and for any inconvenience.
