Popular Auckland Viaduct bar Headquarters has been named a location of interest - and its outspoken owner Leo Molloy has hit the roof.
HQ was one of four new locations added to the Ministry of Health's list last night - with people being told to isolate if they were there on Saturday, August 14 between 11.30pm and 1.30am, and to get tested after days 5 and 12.
In a Facebook post last night, the HQ bar took aim at the ministry.
"This was 15 days ago. No staff or customers have had clinical signs or been infected with Covid," read the post. "The muppets rang us on the Tuesday the 24th and said they'd been trying to email us but they didn't have 'nz' on the end of the email address!
"I did advise them that this date was, even at that stage, two incubation cycles ago
Now here we go. It's only 15 days old... I hope you all got tested on the 19th and 26 even though you had no idea we were a location of interest."
"Have I not been telling you this is a shambles?"
The bar was one of four new locations of interest released on Sunday, day 12 of level 4 lockdown.
The other three locations of interest were:
• Residence Mount Terrace Apartments.
• Novi Lunch Bar.
• Strategic dynamics Class in WH125 AUT Campus, Wellesley St East.
The Residence Mount Terrace Apartments in Auckland's CBD has been added to the list five times.
The times and dates include:
• August 16, 6.50 pm to 11.59 pm.
• August 17 12am to 9.30am and 4.50pm to 11.59pm
• August 18 12am to 11.59pm.
• August 19 12am to 5.30pm.
The Ministry of Health are asking people on level 3, level 5 and basement level to isolate for the next two weeks. They must also get tested on day five and 12 after last exposure.
Novi Lunch Bar has previously been on the list however, the time has been updated.
Anyone who visited the Mt Wellington lunch bar on August 12 between 1.45pm and 2pm must isolate for the next two days and get a test on day five and 12.
The same advice goes to anyone who was at a Strategic dynamics Class in room WH125 on August 17 between 2pm to 4.15pm.
