No Confirmed Or Active Covid-19 Cases In Northland

Northland DHB has seen an increase in demand for Covid-19 testing on the back of recent reports of confirmed cases at the border and government managed quarantine.

“Currently there are NO active, confirmed or probable cases of Covid-19 in Northland, we have not had a case since April 24”, confirmed Medical Officer of Health, Dr Jose Ortega.

Speculation about recent arrivals travelling to Northland for tangi or home to whānau, has led to increased anxiety.

Dr Ortega confirmed those who left managed quarantine and travelled to Northlandhave been tested for Covid-19 and all returned negative results.

“They do not have Covid-19, they are free to travel and go about their lives, and there is no requirement to test anyone who has been in contact with them”.

Northland DHB is continuing COVID-19 testing with increased hours at their Community Based Testing Centers and across the rohe, with Māori Health Providers mobile services reaching into the smaller communities they currently visit.

Mobile clinics will improve access to those who are showing any symptoms.

Since the beginning of March over 12,000 tests have been administered via community testing in Northland.

Testing Center times and venues are published via the Northland DHB website.
