The Queenstown Top 10 Holiday Park on Arthurs Point Road has today been added to the Ministry of Health’s list of Covid-19 high-risk locations.

People who visited the accommodation on Sunday, January 9 and Monday, January 10 between 12am and 11.45pm, and on Tuesday, January 11 between 12am and 9.45pm are being considered as close contacts.

They are asked to self-isolate and arrange to immediately get themselves tested.
