Coronavirus: Where to get tested

Caroline Williams Reporter from Auckland Stuff

A raft of new coronavirus testing centres have opened across Auckland following the confirmation of a new community cluster in south Auckland.
Following the announcement on Tuesday night, the Northern Regional Health Co-ordination Centre recorded over 7800 Covid-19 tests on Wednesday, beating the previous record of 6407 tests on June 23.
Anyone experiencing cold or flu-like symptoms should seek to get a free Covid-19 test at their local general practice, urgent care clinic or one of Auckland's 15 community testing centres.

Shops closed.

David from Glen Eden

Seems no sense to me closing butchers, bakers, and vege shops. It puts too much strain on supermarkets, They make enough money any day! Rules can be applied to keep it safe. There's more to gain than lose surely if they stay open..
