NOTICE: Waste Water Testing for Traces of COVID-19 Virus

Carterton and Featherston will join Masterton in having their wastewater tested for signs of Covid-19 infections in the community. This will provide an additional check that will help in identifying early signs of community infection.

Only wastewater from properties that are on town sewage treatment system can be tested. It is important to know that we cannot relax our approach to keeping ourselves and each other safe from infection, as not all wastewater can be checked.

A negative test is not confirmation that Covid-19 does not exist in our communities.

Please continue to do the right thing and use a face mask when in public places, maintain a 2-metre distance from others and scan the Covid-19 QR code wherever available.
