Loyal Kiwi fans praised the men for their commitment, with one calling them "great New Zealanders".

Yesterday, Wells shared a photo of himself though Seven Sharp's Twitter account.

"All by myself [don't wanna be]," the post reads.

Radio Hauraki's content director Mike Lane confirmed to the Herald the pair would be working remotely until the test comes back.

If it comes back negative, they will return to work as normal, he said.


TVNZ said in a statement yesterday: "We have immediately implemented Ministry of Health advice and notified anyone that has been in close contact with the individual. Those people are now isolating until test results are confirmed.

"Those in contact include several TVNZ personnel as well as external parties related to the Bachelorette production.

"We appreciate there is public interest in the show and will advise media as soon as we have a test result, which is expected on Thursday, March 19."
