Coronavirus: Full list of New Zealand's locations of interest - Friday August 27, 2021

The number of new locations of interest is slowing down as New Zealand's alert level four lockdown enters its tenth day. 

Case numbers are still high with 68 new cases reported on Thursday bringing the total to 277 - but Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said a lot of the spread is within households, which is good news. 

The South Island is yet to record a case or location of interest. There are currently locations in Auckland, Wellington, Coromandel, Thames, Tokoroa, Waiouru, Bulls and Porirua.

Kiwis who have been at a location during the specified time are asked to follow the directions listed next to the location on the below list and call Healthline on 0800 358 5453. If you were not at the location of interest at the relevant time, you do not need to be tested.

For those who have been at a location of interest during the relevant time, it is likely you will need more than one test, so you must continue to isolate until you have spoken to Healthline. They will advise you and your household members on what you need to do. Please follow their advice to limit the spread of COVID-19.

Updates to the list are generally made every two hours from around 8am. A searchable list of locations of interest is available here while a map of locations can be found here.
