Those who visited the supermarket between 3.15pm and 5pm last Sunday are asked to self-isolate, test immediately and again on day five after exposure. The Ministry of Health said it would not publish all low-risk locations of interest in red areas under the new Covid protection framework, saying it would list high-risk exposure events instead. 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 may 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.
