Section of the Sulfur Point overflow parking lot to house isolation motorhomes

The Bay of Plenty District Health Board has been working with Tauranga City Council to find a suitable location to temporarily house four self-contained motorhomes for COVID-19 isolation purposes.

Motorhomes are for people who have COVID-19, but due to personal circumstances cannot safely isolate themselves at another address.

Starting Tuesday, April 19, a small portion of the Sulfur Point overflow parking lot will be used to accommodate motorhomes until at least mid-May 2022.

The area will be secured 24/7 and fenced and people in isolation will not be able to leave the area in line with Ministry of Health guidelines.

Support is being provided to those staying at Sulfur Point to reduce the risk of spreading the virus.

We appreciate the patience of the community as we help people isolate themselves safely.
