A Napier rest home has put some of its residents into isolation after a probable case of Covid-19.

The residents and some staff put into isolation after being linked to a visiting cruise ship with 133 confirmed Covid-19 cases.

That was after a person in Hawke's Bay who has tested positive for the coronavirus visited the rest home after going on board the Ruby Princess when it docked in Napier on 15 March.

RNZ Hawke's Bay reporter Anusha Bradley has been looking into the story.
