Government reveals details of COVID-19 positive family's Rotorua visit

More details on the travels of a family who tested positive for COVID-19 have been revealed by the Government.

Four members of an Auckland family tested positive for COVID-19 on Tuesday with no link to overseas travel or border facilities.

While they were symptomatic, two members of the family left Auckland to holiday in Rotorua.

In a press conference on Wednesday, Director-General of Health Dr Ashley Bloomfield said so far no close contacts have been identified from that trip. 

Dr Bloomfield also revealed three locations the family visited. 

The woman in her 20s and a preschool aged child stayed in the Wai Ora Lake Resort between August 8 and 11.

They then visited the Skyline Gondola and Lodge on August 9 between 4 and 6pm and the Heritage Farm and 3D Art Gallery on August 10 between 3pm and 4pm.

Dr Bloomfield said anyone who had used the COVID-19 Tracer app to record their presence at these locations at the same time would receive an alert.

He added the Government was still working to identify other locations they may have visited such as restaurants and cafes.

"The family visit was several days long, that is a conversation that is happening with them today," he said. 

"Before we release that information we want to talk with the businesses first."

He warned anyone in Rotorua to remain alert and be aware if they begin showing symptoms. 

Auckland is currently at COVID-19 Alert Level 3 as a result of the confirmed cases and people are urged to stay home.

The rest of New Zealand is at Alert Level 2.
