“Kia haumaru, keep safe, whānau. You know, you talk about tiakina tō whakapapa, well this is it, show it now…Keep your whakapapa safe.”

Ernest Montgomery of the Waikato DHB is encouraging people in the Ōtorohanga District to get tested, following news of the two confirmed Covid-19 cases in Ōtorohanga yesterday.
With 133 tests conducted today at the local rugby club, he says these new cases are a reminder for whānau living in the area to not only get tested, but to also get vaccinated.
