Floriditas in Cuba Street has closed after receiving a call from the Ministry of Health telling them that the infected Australian tourist had lunch there between 1 and 3 on Saturday.

Floriditas reports:

We are closing the restaurant for a deep clean, and fully complying with the Ministry guidelines. All staff working on that day are isolating. If you dined with us on Saturday between 1 and 3, please isolate and get a covid test.

It’s critically important for us and for Wellington and for New Zealand that everyone does their part.
