Testing sites in the Capital have been boosted as Wellingtonians rush to get tested.

The Wellington region shifted into alert level two last night after a tourist from Sydney positive when he landed back across the Tasman.

As a result, thousands of people have been told to isolate and get a test but so far there are no new cases in the community.

Our reporter Hamish Cardwell and cameraman Samuel Rillstone stopped by a number of the new testing sites today.
