Coronavirus: Auckland remaining at alert level 3 until August 26

The Team Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Hi neighbours,

Have you heard the news? Auckland will remain in level 3, while the rest of the country will remain at level 2 until midnight Wednesday, August 26 – an additional 12 days.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said the approach is “short, but precautionary”. Extending the restrictions for an additional 12 days is the same length of the virus’ incubation period, director-general of health Dr Ashley Bloomfield said.

Local Testing Stations

Denise Lee from Denise Lee MP

Hi everyone,

The Auckland DHB have confirmed the current list of testing sites remain accurate. Unfortunately there are no plans to add additional testing facilities in our area, despite what I believe about a current need for it.

The list of our closest facilities is available here:

www.adhb.health.nz...

Some have asked about the new Waipuna Hotel testing facility in Mt Wellington. This is reserved for close contacts of the known Auckland cluster only. If you are looking for general testing facilities, I have been advised you should approach other sites.

I'm also told that sites for testing can change as more information comes to light. I will update you if and when changes are made in our area.
