The Ministry of Health says a probable case of Covid-19 in the community is a reminder of how tricky the virus is, as it releases a list of 30 locations the woman visited.
The latest probable case is a 56-year-old woman who was released from isolation at the Pullman Hotel in Auckland after testing negative twice during her stay.
After leaving isolation on 13 January she returned to her home in Northland, where she lives with her husband. The pair then travelled around Northland, visiting Dargaville, Mangawhai, Whangārei and Helensville in Auckland.
She is understood to have four close contacts, including her husband and people she came in contact within a retail setting.
Businesses and premises she visited have been published on the Ministry of Health’s (MOH) website.
They include Noel Leeming, Bendon and The Warehouse in Whangarei, cafes, bars, restaurants and other retail outlets.
