The ministry said in a statement that early indications show these two cases are close contacts of a previously confirmed case from Te Awamutu.

They were tested yesterday and received their results back today.

The two cases are now isolating locally in dedicated accommodation, with public health oversight, the ministry said.

“Investigations are continuing to determine further details around the cases movements and another update will be provided tomorrow,” a Ministry of Health spokesperson said.

Waikato DHB will open a testing site in the township from tomorrow between 11am and 3pm and is encouraging anyone in the township who may have any symptoms to take a test.

The testing site will be open at Ōtorohanga Club – 107 Maniapoto Street.

The two cases will be added to the Ministry’s case total tomorrow.
