Covid 19 Delta outbreak: Locations of interest – public toilets in Raglan used by positive case

A public toilet facility in Raglan has been linked to a person with Covid-19.

The block of toilets on Cliff St was used by a person who has tested positive for the virus on Sunday, October 3.

But exactly what time they used it is not clear, with the Ministry of Health giving an exposure time of between 9am and midnight that day.

Anyone who used the public toilets that day is being asked to self-monitor for any Covid symptoms and to get a test carried out if any symptoms start to show.
A number of new locations have been released in the ministry’s latest update this morning.

They include two exposure events at a shop in Hamilton – the SuperValue Parkwood on Gordonton Rd in Chartwell.

A positive case or cases are linked to the store twice last week; firstly on Wednesday, October 6, between 1pm and 3pm and then on Saturday, October 9, between 1pm and 3pm.
