This is the first case in the Coromandel. There was a case in Thames on November 18.

The district moved in the orange setting of the traffic light system overnight.

Council staff and customers were asked to wear a mask, scan in and use their vaccination passport.

People should stay home if sick, get a Covid-19 test, and isolate until the results come in.

“However, the expected influx of tourists from other parts of New Zealand from December 15 does raise the risk of Covid infections in our community,” the council’s statement said.
