A COVID-19 case is self-isolating in the Hawke's Bay after they tested positive after travelling into the region.

The person is a permitted traveller from Auckland and public health staff are already testing contacts.

Locations of interest will be added to the Ministry of Heath's website as they are confirmed.

Medical Officer of Health Dr Rachel Eyre urges anyone in the Hawke's Bay with COVID-19-related symptoms - no matter how mild - to get tested, even if they are vaccinated.

"It's important any feeling unwell with symptoms goes and gets tested at one of the many locations available across our region," she says.

"Also if you haven't been vaccinated against COVID-19 yet, there are lots of opportunities to get a vaccination this weekend."

COVID-19 testing and vaccination site locations are available on Hawke's Bay DHB's website.
