A Department of Conservation (DOC) campsite near Waipu and two Whangarei companies in New Zealand’s Northland are among the latest places of interest in connection with the Covid-positive woman who has recently gone to the region, a report said.

Comfort Hotel Flames in Onerahi had an exposure event on October 2 between 6-6:30 pm. Pepe’s Dairy, located in Onerahi, had an exposure event on October 3 between 9-10 am.

It is believed that the Uretiti Beach DoC camping site to the south of Whangarei was also exposed to the virus later between 6:30 pm and 5 pm the following day.

Covid-19 Response Minister Chris Hipkins held a late press conference to announce that a woman—who registered a weak positive test in Northland—had returned a positive test result on her return to Auckland.

Before returning to Auckland, she is said to have traveled everywhere in the region, going to Whangarei, Kamo, Paihia, and Kawakawa.

Two service stations named as sites of interest included BP Connect Wylies in Woodhill (October 2 – 11:20 pm – 12:20 am) in addition to Z Kensington (October 4 – 3:45 pm-4:45 pm).

The camp’s manager Farrow stated that it was believed another woman—reportedly traveling with the Covid-positive case— had passed through the campsite between October 3-5.

The 40 or so people on the site were in lockdown and not able to go out. About 15 had been at the site between the relevant dates.

Farrow is now helping the DHB with contact tracing by looking through security footage.

Farrow said almost all campers had received at least one shot, while the majority were fully vaccinated.
