Report your RAT test result whether positive or negative
- Reporting a positive test not only helps health officials monitor the outbreak, it is also important if you or your whānau require additional healthcare services
- Reporting a negative test helps health officials better understand how the outbreak is circulating through our households and communities
- A weak positive is still a positive. Even if the test line is faint, you have COVID-19 and could be infectious.
The Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) has issued an extension to the public health warning advising the public not to collect or consume shellfish harvested from Crail Bay in Marlborough Sounds.
The extension now applies to the entire Pelorus Sound area including its arms to the east and west, up to a line at the entrance from Paparoa to Culdaff Point.
Routine tests on shellfish samples taken from this region have shown levels of Paralytic Shellfish Poisoning (PSP) toxins above the safe limit of 0.8 mg/kg set by MPI. Anyone eating shellfish from this area is potentially at risk of illness.
