There is currently 23 locations of interest, 10 in Auckland and 13 in Coromandel. Current locations of interest can be found here.

The case has no links to the border and interviews are currently being undertaken with the case to find any possible locations of interest and how they came to be in contact with Covid-19.

✨Light hearted fun for this wet Friday night - ENJOY✨
While the whole world was watching the Olympics from a distance, astronauts aboard the International Space Station (ISS) were much farther—they weren’t even under the same sky. So as not to wallow in FOMO, crew members of various space agencies competed in what has been considered the “first-ever Space Olympics.”

Split into two teams, Team Dragon (after SpaceX’s Crew Dragon) and Team Soyuz (after Russia’s Soyuz), Space Olympians went head to head in space-exclusive sports of ‘Synchronized Space Swimming’, ‘Lack-of-Floor Routine’, ‘No-Handball’, and ‘Weightless Sharpshooting’, with microgravity being their greatest obstacle.

Kiwis deserve better, which is why we’re fighting for power affordability for all of us. But we can’t do it alone.

Join us in the Revolt to bring power prices down, by signing the petition to demand that the Government reforms NZ’s broken electricity market. #Powergate ✊🏾 ✊🏿 ✊🏼 ✊🏽
