Vodafone NZ has confirmed one of its Auckland-based staff members has tested positive for Covid-19 in a case connected to the current Auckland cluster.
"Auckland Regional Public Health Service has advised that our team member was not infectious when they were last in the office (13 days ago) therefore there is no risk of the virus having been passed on in the office," Vodafone said in an internal email to staff obtained by the Herald.
The staff member is part of the company's InnoV8 Auckland team based at Smales Farm on the North Shore. The infection was connected to the current Auckland cluster, Vodafone said.
