Taupō cases

The Ministry is this evening confirming positive results for two household contacts of the Taupō case announced earlier today.

We are also confirming a fourth positive result in Taupō, in a close contact of the case.

These results are not unexpected among household and other close contacts.

Two other household contacts of the case have tested negative.

Public health staff at Toi Te Ora are continuing to interview the initial case and their contacts.

As a result of those interviews, it’s understood that the case and a close contact (who is now isolating in Taupō) travelled to Masterton last weekend, before the person became symptomatic on Monday.
