From Morning Report, 7:14 am on 4 October 2021

The Waikato beachside town of Raglan is waking up under an alert level 3 lockdown after a Covid-19 case popped up in the community yesterday.

The case is one of two detected in the Waikato yesterday, with another connected case in Hamilton East.

Raglan residents flocked to get tested yesterday, with photos on social media showing lines of cars snaking down roads.

It comes as local businesses who had their hopes pinned on the school holiday influx are expecting to see their income go down the drain.
