Wastewater samples taken by ESR in Wellington that were found to have Covid-19 traces are set to return results later this evening.
New samples were collected following two earlier ones on May 14 that returned weak positive results.
It will determine whether or not the shedding of the virus was involved in previously recovered cases.
Two proclaimed as recovered who lived in the Wellington region left Auckland’s quarantine facility in the last couple of weeks, while a historical case left a Wellington managed isolation facility on the same day as the second samples.
The results are likely due to recently recovered cases that are still scattering the virus.
Anyone who does develop symptoms as a precautionary approach is asked to get tested to rule out any undetected Covid-19 infection.
Visitors in the Wellington region are advised to get tested by calling Healthline and requesting one at 0800 358 5453. Alternatively, they can contact their doctor or visit a testing station to get a test.
