Several new locations of interest have been added in Katikati after a person tested positive in the community for Covid-19.

Katikati Antiques and Interiors owner Alice McNeil found out her store was a location of interest just 10 minutes before speaking to the Bay of Plenty Times.

When asked about her first reaction to the news, McNeil said the first word that came to mind was: “God.”

“I’m not opening and I’m going down the road to get a test.”

A staff member of Bottle-O Katikati said they were sorting out a deep clean but declined to comment further.

Other locations of interest in the Western Bay of Plenty town are Limited Edition, the Good Life Opportunity Shop, Hammer Hardware and the Waipuna Hospice Shop
