Auckland Regional Public Health Service (ARPHS) is following up people who have become unwell after exposure to an unknown chemical at Augusta House in Victoria Street, Auckland.  ARPHS staff are interviewing those people worst affected. The interviews are to determine where they were at the time of exposure and what symptoms they experienced. WorkSafe New Zealand is investigating the incident and the cause has not yet been established.

Dr Denise Barnfather, ARPHS Medical Officer of Health, recommends that no one enters the restricted areas of the building until people are informed it is safe. People who were exposed to the chemical and are experiencing symptoms such as headache, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, blurred vision, shortness of breath or chest tightness should seek medical attention immediately.
