Media release | Pānui pāpāho - Rotorua COVID-19 alert - List of places

13 August 2020

A person confirmed with COVID-19 travelled from Auckland to Rotorua last weekend and visited a number of public places in Rotorua.

“If you were at one of these places at these dates and times there is a small possibility that you may have been exposed, and so you are considered to be a casual contact. It is advised that you self-isolate and get tested for COVID-19,” says Dr Neil de Wet, Medical Officer of Health for Toi Te Ora Public Health.

“You can come out of self-isolation when you have a negative test but you should remain vigilant for any symptoms. If at any later stage you have symptoms that may be COVID-19 you must immediately self-isolate and get tested,” says Dr de Wet.

Places visited in Rotorua                             Date and approximate time

Wai Ora Lakeside Hotel                               Saturday 8th Aug from 3:30pm until Tuesday 11th Aug at 9am

Herbs & Spices Thai Restaurant                 Saturday 8thAug, 8:00pm-9pm

There are currently no other known possible exposure events of concern in Rotorua but this list will be updated if any others are confirmed.

Public health teams are also following up a boat cruise in Taupō - those on the boat cruise who may be contacts are being followed up directly. “From the information we have currently, we are not aware of any other possible exposures of concern in Taupō,” says Dr de Wet.

It can take from 1 to 14 days after exposure to COVID-19 to start developing symptoms, so anyone who visited these places at these times should remain vigilant for the symptoms of COVID-19 for two weeks from when they may have been exposed.

The symptoms of COVID-19 may include a cough, a fever, shortness of breath, a sore throat, runny nose and temporary loss of smell.

Dr Rawiri Taonui | Covid | Modelling of border breaches demonstrates need to reduce arrivals 21 September 2020
Dr Rawiri Taonui: On 8 September modelling by this researcher showed that if the government did not reduce the number of arrivals into New Zealand there would be another breach at the border or in Managed Isolation and Quarantine (MIQ) leading to a further Covid-19 outbreak in October or November. Since then, there have been two such breaches on 13 and 19 September.
