MidCentral DHB COVID-19 Update – 23 January
We have no new cases of COVID-19 to report in MidCentral as at 1pm on Sunday 23 January 2022.
Yesterday, 406 tests were processed across the rohe. All close contacts have so far returned negative tests with Day 5 tests currently underway. COVID-19 has not been detected in wastewater results, this is not unexpected as our confirmed case is not using the central sewerage system.
We continue to encourage people to follow the advice on the Ministry of Health website if they have visited any of the high-risk locations of interest connected to the positive Omicron case.
