If you were in Wellington over the weekend please read further

A traveller from Sydney, who visited Wellington from Saturday 19 June until Monday 21 June, has tested positive for COVID-19 upon their return to Australia.

Anyone who was in Wellington over the weekend should check the current locations of interest and follow the relevant advice on the Ministry of Health and COVID-19 websites.


It’s business as usual for us, however you will see increased precautions in place to keep our community safe. You'll see increased cleaning of high-touch surfaces, plenty of hand sanitiser available for your use and NZ COVID Tracer QR code posters displayed prominently to assist with contact tracing.

Library events and activities, including Story Times, Small Times, Book Chats and Computer Classes, are all up and running. Please check our website and Facebook page for updates. While we look forward to seeing you in person at our events and in our Library spaces, please do stay home if you’re sick!

Thank you to everyone for your patience as we’ve moved through Alert Levels. We hope to see you at the library soon.
