Covid 19 coronavirus Delta outbreak: Auckland’s Green Bay High School now linked to outbreak

Green Bay High School in West Auckland is the newest school to be linked to the current Delta outbreak which has now grown to more than 100 cases.

The West Auckland school confirmed the positive case via its Facebook page.

“We found out this afternoon that we have a GBHS student who has tested positive for Covid-19,” the post said.

Attached to the Facebook post was a letter from the Auckland Regional Public Health Service (ARPHS).

Kia ora e te whānau,I hope you are all doing well in your bubbles. We found out this afternoon that we have a GBHS…

ARPHS said the student was infectious when at school on the week ending August 17.

All staff and students of the college are considered close contacts and are being asked stay in self-isolation at home for 14 days.

Last week a 25-year-old teacher from Avondale College tested positive after her flatmate contracted the virus from a co-worker.
