    Wastewater testing for Covid-19 is scaling up, after new sites were added to ESR's testing network

    Wastewater testing for Covid-19 is scaling up, after new sites were added to ESR's testing network


    The inclusion of Whangarei, Gisborne, Tauranga, Taupo, New Plymouth, Napier, Palmerston North, Nelson, Dunedin and Invercargill brings the total sites to 26.

    Further wastewater samples taken from Tauranga and Mount Maunganui last Wednesday in relation to a Covid-infected ship have returned negative results.

    Officials say there have been no unexpected detections in other samples around the country.
