A New World in Manurewa is on the list twice, on Sunday October 3, between 1.37pm and 2.35pm and Monday October 11, between 9.30am and 12.30pm.

A Pizza Hut store in Highland Park, located in Half Moon Bay, is the most recent Auckland addition, marked for Wednesday October 13 between 6.30pm and 7.30pm.

The smattering of locations outside of Auckland added to the Ministry’s list follow the Government’s announcement to keep Auckland and Waikato in alert level 3, despite calls from experts to put in motion a level 4 “circuit breaker”.

Auckland will stay in lockdown for a further two weeks, while current settings for Waikato will be reassessed on Friday.

The full list of locations of interest and visit times released by the Ministry of Health can be found below.

This list can be viewed in two ways: Date of visit (locations added today have the word NEW beside them) or, if you switch the toggle to Date included, newly added locations appear at the top of the list.

If you were at a location of interest at one of the specified times, you will likely need to self-isolate and be tested. Follow the instructions for that location on the Ministry of Health website and call Healthline on 0800 358 5453 for advice on testing.

This list is automatically updated as soon as locations of interest appear on the Ministry of Health website.
