The probable Northland COVID-19 Community Case that was reported earlier today is a 56-year-old woman who tested positive after leaving 14 days of being in a managed isolation and quarantine facility.

She returned from Spain and the Netherlands. Fortunately, she has been using Bluetooth tracking and been scanning since January 13 after moving in and out of businesses.

There are around 30 locations that have been identified. Details of those specific locations are to yet be published.


The woman has been in the areas of Helensville, Mangawhai and Dargaville. All people at these locations were notified with a push notification being sent out to self-isolate.

A COVID-19 testing station will be opening in Mangawhai to ensure the virus is not anywhere else in the community.

If someone does show any sort of symptoms of COVID-19, they are recommended to stay isolated and contact Healthline to book a test.

There’s no need for any move in Alert Lockdown Levels as the case is still under investigation.
