A Māori public health group in west Auckland has confirmed one of its employees has tested positive for Covid-19.
Hāpai Te Hauora is a non-clinical public health service based in Henderson that advocates for better Māori health policy.
In a statement, it said a staff member was in self-isolation after being diagnosed with Covid-19.
It said most of its staff had continued working from home under alert level 2, with precautions in place for those needing to use the office spaces, so the risk of spread to other kaimahi was low.
Auckland Regional Public Health Services (ARPHS) said it had identified the person’s close contacts, and they had been contacted and advised to get tested and to self-isolate for a full 14 days.
It said the risk to other staff not identified as close contacts, and those employees who work for other organisations in the same building, was considered to be very low.
