The chemist also has an entrance on the other side of the store – on Wyndham St.

Anyone who was at either place during those times is advised to monitor their health for 14 days after being there and to get a Covid test if symptoms start to show.

A total of 42 places of interest or exposure sites were announced by health officials yesterday and included two bakeries in Tokoroa.

The KK Bakery & Cafe, on 237 Leith Place, was visited by a person who tested positive for Covid last Thursday, October 21, between 5.15am and 6am.

Another cafe – The Bakehouse Cafe – on the same street is also connected to a positive case on the same day and the same time.

The advice for members of the public who were there at those times is the same – monitor your health for the next two weeks after exposure and get a test if symptoms arise.
