People who were at The Malt pub in Greenhithe, Auckland, on 16 October should self-isolate and get tested.
A person, now confirmed with COVID-19, was infectious while in the pub between 7:30 pm and 10 pm on Friday 16 October. The person is one of the cases announced by the Ministry of Health today.
People who scanned the NZ COVID Tracer QR code at The Malt during this evening should receive a notification. This will confirm they were there at the same time as the case.
Anyone at The Malt in Greenhithe during this time should now self-isolate and get tested. Staff will also be asked to get tested.
The advise is to stay at home in self-isolation until a negative test result has been received.
Anyone at the pub that night who gets sick, even after a negative test result, should self-isolate again, and get tested again.
There will be a pop up community testing centre in the Greenhithe area tomorrow. The location and times will be made available on the Auckland Regional Public Health Service (ARPHS) website.
Household members of pub patrons from that night need only to get tested and stay home if either:
the person who was at the pub becomes sick or develops any symptoms
they are directed to do so by public health.
