An initial weak positive result in Christchurch reported today is being further investigated including a repeat swab being taken and the results expected to be reported in tomorrow’s update.

In a statement, the Ministry of Health said today’s case recently travelled to the North Island, and is linked to another case in the Lower North Island.

”Every new case is an urgent reminder to get tested if you’re feeling unwell. Testing at high numbers will help to minimise and contain the spread of COVID-19 in Christchurch.”

There is good testing capacity across the city today. Testing locations throughout Canterbury can be found on the Canterbury DHB website.

The Ministry continues to ask people in Canterbury to regularly check the Ministry’s locations of interest page.

Ministry of Health said it continues to urge anyone in New Zealand with COVID-19-related symptoms – no matter how mild – to get tested, even if they are vaccinated.

COVID-19 testing and vaccination site locations are available on the Healthpoint website.
