Covid-19 negative test results

Nauru passengers return negative Covid results

A statement said the initial test results suggested shedding from old infection but this needed further testing to confirm.

The passengers had no known past Covid infection and had been well and asymptomatic. All previous tests taken before their travel were all negative.

President Lionel Aingimea also travelled on the same flight.

The presidential delegation all returned negative PCR tests results on Friday.

Blues squad given all clear

The Blues squad that played the Hurricanes remained in Wellington post-game, and yesterday all returned negative Covid tests.

It is bye week, so the squad has now dispersed and will officially reassemble at the weekend with training to re-start on Sunday at the temporary base in Cambridge, Waikato.

The remainder of the squad and staff that did travel to Wellington have relocated to Cambridge - and remain in a separate bubble awaiting the results of their Covid Tests - due back today.

If they are clear, then they too will be free to disperse.
