Seventy-five new cases of Covid in Tairawhiti
There are 75 new cases of Covid-19 to report today. This follows 76 cases yesterday, as Hauora Tairawhiti warns of the risk of long Covid.
“If you’ve had Covid recently, it’s important to take your time with your recovery,” a Hauora Tairawhiti spokesman said.
“Listen to what your body is telling you. Returning to sport or exercise like the gym too quickly could lead to long Covid, as your system still hasn’t recovered. Rest is essential — talk to your employer about options to ease back into work.”
From Monday next week the Palmerston Road vaccination clinic will reduce its hours to 12.30pm to 4.30pm. People can book or simply walk in. The clinic does not provide flu vaccinations.
RATs can be picked up today at the Railway Station up to 12.30pm. Tomorrow they can be picked up at Te Tini o Porou on Huxley Road.”
