More locations have been identified by the Ministry of Health as linked to the latest Covid-19 cases in the community. 

The new additions to the list are Li'l Abners Takeaways and Choice Food Bar, both on Great South Road in Papatoetoe. 

The two takeaway shops were visited last Friday, 19 February. Li'l Abners Takeaways was visited between 1am and 1.20am and Choice Food Bar was visited between 1.15am and 1.20am. 

People who visited the takeaway shops during the times are categorised as casual-plus contacts and are advised to stay home and get tested.

They’re asked to stay home until they return a negative test result, but if symptoms develop after their negative result to get retested immediately.

These two new locations join the already announced list of locations of interest outlined by the Ministry of Health.
