Covid-19 testing Nelson - Tasman Today

Covid - 19 Testing Station Saxton Field


If you need to have a Covid - 19 test below are the venues where you can have this test within Tasman and Nelson on Friday 3 December.

There are 10 new cases in Nelson-Tasman today, but one will be officially added to Friday's figures as it was reported after the 9am cut-off.

This takes the number of active cases in the region to 14. These cases are made up of two clusters, with 11 in one and three in the other. A possible connection between the two clusters is being investigated.

Two schools in Nelson, Enner Glynn School and Broadgreen Intermediate, have recorded cases. Both schools have temporarily closed while a risk assessment is undertaken and close contacts are identified. Next steps will then be agreed with the Ministry of Education.

Four new locations of interest in Nelson were added to the Ministry of Health website on Wednesday afternoon. People in the Nelson-Tasman region are asked to check this page as it is updated regularly.

If you are not vaccinated, now is the time, as vaccination is the number one defence against COVID-19. Your DHB or local health provider will have plenty of opportunities to make this happen. 

Testing and vaccination centre locations nationwide can be found on the Healthpoint website.
