Background: A member of the Living Earth Christchurch team tested positive for COVID-19 in March. This team member contracted the virus from an international tourist they had been exposed to on 12 March.
Waste Management today re-confirmed that only 4 team members at the Living Earth Christchurch site (including the first case) have tested positive to COVID-19.
Every one of those team members have now been classified as recovered by health officials.
There are no other cases of COVID-19 at the site.
Waste Management has no knowledge of any other cases, either at our facilities or elsewhere in Christchurch.
Any reporting indicating otherwise is incorrect and Waste Management is disappointed for the confusion caused by this erroneous reporting.
