An employee of the famous SkyCity Casino in Auckland has tested positive for Covid-19 amidst the fear of the delta variant.
The SkyCity Casino has been regularly informing its stakeholders about this and in the evening they even posted a post on their Instagram.
The Post Said:
It was just announced that a SkyCity employee in Auckland was a confirmed case of CAVID-19 for the period between 8:30 pm on Friday 13 August and 6 am on Saturday 14 August when they worked in our Level 3 Platinum Gaming Room.
It is listed as a location of interest by the Ministry of Health. During the three hours between 1.15 a.m. and three a.m. on Saturday, August 14, the person who later tested positive for the virus visited the SkyCity Casino.
An Auckland employee has also been notified of a positive Covid-19 case. A notice was sent out to Fisher & Paykel employees this week regarding the case. Initially, it was reported that the worker worked in the Stewart Building in East Tamaki during the overnight shift on Thursday.
In the note, it is stated that the affected area has been isolated and cleaned, and workers on the site have now been ordered to wear masks.
“Your health and wellbeing are our priority and as soon as we have more information we will be back in touch with you,” SkyCity Casino told staff in the message.
There have been several other cases of the COVID-19 in the area:
- It was reported that up to 500 students attended the ball held at Aotea Centre on 14 August at which a positive student was identified. Nearly 1000 staff members and students have been ordered into isolation for 14 days at home.
- There has been a positive test from a bus driver connected to Royal Oak Intermediate School in Auckland, and contact tracers are searching for the passengers on the bus in order to identify them since they are considered close relatives to the driver.
- Students from two South Auckland secondary schools have accepted the result of a positive test. During the daytime of 17 August, the Catholic secondary schools McAuley High School in Otahuhu and De La Salle College in Mangere both had students with Covid-19 who tested positive and were at school when infected.
Amidst this, the government and the people are doing their best to combat COVID and New Zealand hit two milestones yesterday, by achieving the highest number of vaccinated people and tests.
