Parua Bay Tavern was closed yesterday after a staff member was identified as being in close contact with a confirmed Covid-19 case outside of their workplace. All staff members have been self-isolating — received negative results for the virus.
The Tavern will reopen tomorrow as it is not listed as a location of interest.
Sarah Hoyle, Northland DHB Incident Controller, says active cases in the region remind everyone to get a test if they develop symptoms.
“It is important that anyone who has been at a location of interest, or who has cold and flu symptoms, gets a test,” she said.
