Locations of Interest

Locations of Interest are only published to the Ministry of Health website if contact tracers need people to self-identify as a close or casual contact. Many exposure events happen in environments where contact tracers can easily identify and contact anyone who may have been exposed and are therefore not added as Locations of Interest.

Please visit the Ministry of Health website for the latest locations of interest (external website) .


We are working on increasing our testing capacity to respond to demand if necessary.
