Schools are continuing to deal with staffing issues as Covid-19 cases emerge.

Last Thursday, there were 177 education facilities in Auckland dealing with active Covid-19 cases.

Secondary Principals' Association President Vaughan Couillault told Mike Hosking Rapid Antigen testing would probably help get staff back to school quicker.

“In Auckland at the moment, if you get your test on a Monday morning, you’re still waiting for it at sort of lunchtime Friday, possibly even Saturday morning. And that’s just about volume.”
