News of a probable case of COVID-19 that was found in Northland has prompted an additional community testing centre to open in the region.
A 56-year-old woman, who left Auckland's Pullman Hotel MIQ facility on January 13, later developed symptoms and returned a positive test.
After leaving MIQ, she travelled around southern Northland, including Helensville, Mangawhai, and Dargaville. She has four close contacts, one of which is the person she lives with.
She is self-isolating at a home south of Whangarei.
There are 10 community-based testing centres across Northland, one of which opened on Sunday.
The Ministry of Health says anyone with symptoms related to COVID-19 is asked to contact Healthline and get tested. Symptoms include a new or worsening cough, fever, shortness of breath, sore throat, sneezing and runny nose, and a temporary loss of smell.
Here is a list of testing locations in the region and the times they are open.
