Northland Moving To Alert Level 3

The Government has confirmed that Northland will move to Alert Level 3 at midnight tonight. 

Uncertainty about where the recent positive COVID-19 case has visited in Northland has led to the region going hard to try and prevent an outbreak. 

“Given our low vaccination rates it is imperative that we stop any potential spread of COVID-19 in its tracks”, said acting chief executive Jeanette Wedding. 

“Until we identify all of the locations of interest associated with the positive case we need to be extremely cautious.”  

Locations of interest will be available on the Ministry of Health website as they are confirmed. Until then anyone in Northland who has COVID-19 symptoms is asked to please get tested, and isolate until you receive your result.
