Covid 19 Delta outbreak: Auckland City Mission linked to positive community case

The Auckland City Mission is now a location of interest after a person with the virus picked up a meal pack from there three days ago.

The Ministry of Health has released several new places of interest on its website.

The mission's temporary branch on Union St - just around the corner from its better known base in Hobson St, which has been refurbished - was linked to an infected person on Monday between 9am and 12pm.

A person with the virus has also been identified in a new location of interest in Raglan - the Wainui Foodmarket. An infected person was there on Saturday between 5.20pm and 5.55pm.

Anyone who was at either place at any time is told to monitor their health for 14 days after exposure and get tested if symptoms start to show.

Staff management issued a message to its customers on Facebook, saying the Ministry of Health had identified its staff and customers who were there during that time as casual contacts.

"This means anyone in-store at this time should self-monitor for Covid-19 symptoms for 14 days. If symptoms for Covid-19 develop, get a test and stay at home until you get a negative test result and until 24 hours after symptoms resolve."

Staff said its teams had been working to increase protocols since the lockdown in Auckland started in mid-August.

"All these remain in place, which means the store has been cleaned multiple times throughout the day, has implemented increased sanitation procedures, physical distancing and mandatory mask-wearing for customers and staff.

"It's been a challenging time for everyone. We ask you to please bear with the team as they work to meet your needs. Be kind, mask up."
