By Kurt Bayer – NZ Herald – 12/03/2022
A “significant cluster” of Covid-19 cases has broken out at the Gloriavale Christian community.
It’s understood that members are now self-isolating inside the closed religious community, which has about 600 members on sprawling land at Haupiri, 60km inland from Greymouth on the South Island’s West Coast.
West Coast District Health incident controller Philip Wheble confirmed they were aware of “a significant cluster of cases of Covid-19 in the Gloriavale community and we continue to work with the community to manage it”.
