A person has tested positive for Covid-19 in Taupō.
District Mayor David Trewavas was advised by the Ministry of Health late last night there was a positive case in the community.
“It’s hit our town, it’s become real and for those who aren’t vaccinated, please, I urge you to act and protect yourself,” Trewavas told Stuff.
He doesn't have any further details of the positive case or locations of interest, but more information was expected from the ministry today.
“We always knew it was going to happen, but we hoped and prayed it didn’t.”
The Ministry of Health announced yesterday that a wastewater sample collected in Taupō on November 8 detected the Covid-19 virus, while a sample collected on November 10 is under investigation.
