KFC Colombo Street in Sydenham, Christchurch has been added to the location of interest Ministry of Health website.

One new case of Covid-19 was detected in Canterbury on Sunday, but it’s not clear if this case is related to the location of interest.

The Ministry of Health said if anyone visited the restaurant on Sunday 28 November between 4:00 pm – 4:30 pm, they should Self-monitor for COVID-19 symptoms for 10 days after you were exposed.

“If symptoms develop, get a test and stay at home until you get a negative test result.2 Dec 4:00 pm.”

Meanwhile, there are ten new cases in Nelson-Tasman today, but one will be officially added to tomorrow’s figures as it came in after the cut off time.

This takes the number of active cases in the region to 14.

These cases are made up of two clusters, with 11 in one and three in the other.

A possible connection between the two clusters is being investigated.

Two schools in Nelson, Enner Glynn School and Broadgreen Intermediate, have had cases. Both schools have temporarily closed while a risk assessment is undertaken and close contacts are identified. Next steps will then be agreed with the Ministry of Education.
