The Auckland prisoner who tested positive for Covid-19 made four stops on his way home to his bail address after release from Mt Eden Corrections Facility, Stuff reports. Two were at “private addresses” in Mt Albert and Māngere, one was at a supermarket at Pokeno, and another was on the road near his bail address in Kaiaua. He remained within the boundary of the bail address until 12.47pm on 16 September, when he presented himself to Police because his address had become unavailable and the court had issued a warrant for his arrest. Director-General of Health Ashley Bloomfield said the man was probably infected by someone he travelled home from the prison with.
