Rotorua MP Todd McClay has called on the Government to make Covid-19 tests available for everyone in the tourist town.
McClay made the call in the wake of news two members from a South Auckland family who tested positive for Covid-19 visited Rotorua last weekend.
The person visited a number a tourist facilities in Rotorua. The Ministry of Health is tracing these movements and working on locations visited by this person.
Covid-19 testing is currently available in Rotorua at the former Holmes Packaging site on Vaughan Road. It will operate as a drive-through facility and is open until 4pm on Wedneday for anyone with symptoms of Covid-19.

Good news – 2021 is set to be the year of the long weekend.
Five out of 10 public holidays will be Mondayised (or Tuesdayised in one case) next year, which means if you work a standard Monday to Friday week, you can look forward to some extended breaks.
In fact, once you’ve tacked on the weekends, you’ll end up getting a whopping 25 days off out of those 10 stat days, plus your region’s anniversary day.

This beautiful wall Photomural was imported from Germany and is made up of 8 panels and measures 3m x 2.4m. I really love doing something outside the ordinary and a bit bold.
