IMO, that area probably now shouldn't drop to level 3, as Northland was delayed due to having a case.
It is a corrections officer, from Auckland, who had been at a LoI. He is fully vaccinated, and the prison was in Full L4 mode, so low risk to transfer in to the public
“Last night (Monday) we were advised that a staff member at Spring Hill Corrections Facility tested positive for COVID-19,” he wrote. “The staff member is fully vaccinated, and has not displayed any symptoms. It is important to note that no other site is impacted at the moment.”
The guard, who lives in Auckland, “worked at the prison during the day on Saturday, and that evening was advised that he had a link to a location of interest. He was tested on Sunday and has been isolating since.”
But i guess it will come down to any LoIs of his being outside Auckland, and if something odd shows up
I imagine they will be keeping any eye on that, and will move waikato back to L4 sharply if necessary
they knew about it yesterday so if they thought there was any danger to the greater Waikato they would moved on it already. He lives in Auckland , was infected in Auckland and by the sound of it he went straight to work and then home to Auckland
