The latest locations of interest in New Zealand’s battle against the Covid-19 pandemic include close contacts over two days at a South Auckland trampoline park.
Anyone at the Jump Trampoline Park in Takanini from 10am to 1.30pm on Monday or from 10.30am to 1pm on Tuesday is regarded by the Ministry of Health as a close contact and must self-isolate, test immediately and on day five after exposure.
The Big Apple restaurant south of Ōtorohanga was also named as a location of interest. Anyone there from 11.45am to 2pm on New Year’s Day should self-monitor for symptoms for 10 days after exposure and get test if symptoms show.
It comes a day after people who were at Longroom Nightclub in Grey Lynn, Auckland, from 10pm on December 31 until 12.50am on New Year’s morning were being asked to get tested and self-isolate.

Taranaki Base Hospital Emergency Department was also listed on Wednesday as a location of interest for people who were there between 6.30pm and midnight on New Year’s Day.
Murder Burger on Ponsonby Rd was also a location from 1.50am to 2.10am on January 1. Anyone at these locations over these times should also follow the ministry’s protocols.
The new traffic light framework started on December 3, allowing more freedoms for fully vaccinated people. The Ministry of Health would not publish all low-risk locations of interest in red areas under the new Covid protection framework.
This list can be viewed in two ways: Date of visit (locations added today have the word NEW beside them) or, if you switch the toggle to Date included, newly added locations appear at the top of the list.
If you were at a location of interest at one of the specified times, you may need to self-isolate and be tested. Follow the instructions for that location on the Ministry of Health website and call Healthline on 0800 358 5453 for advice on testing.
This list is automatically updated as soon as locations of interest appear on the Ministry of Health website.
