Dr Michael Butchard, the Public Health Physician for the SDHB, today advised people who were in Queenstown, Te Anau and Milford on July 1-4 and have Covid-19 symptoms, or have had possible symptoms since July 2 to be tested.
“At this stage we are not advising asymptomatic people to be tested unless the person has been contacted by public health and identified as a close contact, or a contact of a contact," he said.
Dr Butchard said public health staff continue working to identify and trace people in Queenstown and Fiordland who may have been in contact with the traveller.
This included contacting the businesses and places he had visited.
It is known the traveller visited the following places (date and time included):

“We thank all the businesses involved, and the wider community, for their support as we seek to find any evidence of community transmission, Dr Butchard said.
"New Zealand has not needed to live under the restrictions much of the rest of the world is experiencing for several months, and we do not want to lose this hard-won position, so everyone’s assistance remains important."
