Covid-19 Delta outbreak: Auckland Bunnings, automotive parts store among locations of interest

A person who tested positive for Covid-19 spent one at a motel in Whangārei and it appears a staff member at an Auckland retailer for automotive parts worked for three consecutive days while infected.

The Kingswood Manor Motel on Kamo Rd, Whau Valley, Whangārei has been identified as a location of interest after at least one positive case was there on Sunday, October 3 and Monday October 4.

They arrived at 9pm on Sunday and stayed until Monday morning at 10.15am.

Meanwhile an infected person appeared to work three shifts at BNT Automotive in Grafton last Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. They were at the store from 8.30am until 5pm on October 5-7. Anyone at the store during these times is advised to self-monitor for 14 days for symptoms and get a test if symptoms arise.

Anyone who was at the motel or Grafton store at the same time is told to monitor for Covid symptoms and to get tested if any symptoms start to show.

Authorities continue to urge people to check the locations of interest page, as more than 350 exposure events are now listed as being linked to people with Covid.

The Ministry of Health has been releasing a steady stream of locations, over the last few days, in Auckland, Waikato, Northland and Bay of Plenty.
