Delays in COVID-19 testing caused by increased traveller volumes

Delays in COVID-19 testing caused by increased traveller volumes

The Ministry of Health advises the public that due to the increase in traveller testing volumes, our teams have experienced delays in testing and processing results.
The results of arriving travellers are a priority so persons can be released from quarantine with their arrival results. Therefore, there will be a delay getting results to people who attended the testing site at the Hamilton Cathedral yesterday. However, results will be sent by 5pm today.

The Ministry apologises for the inconvenience to travellers awaiting their day 4 results to complete quarantine. Unfortunately, the increased volume and the public holiday has stretched the testing teams who are working outdoors in extreme heat with full PPE.

The Ministry is due to open a new Hamilton testing site by the end of next week, which should better accommodate the volumes being processed daily.
