Other locations inspected by Waikato Regional Council on December 9 showed no sign of toxin-producing algae. They are: Two Mile Beach, Whareroa South Beach, Whareroa North Beach, Omori Stream, Omori boat ramp, Kuratau Beach, Pukawa boat ramp and beach, Waihi Scenic Reserve, Animaria Place at Waitetoko, Waitetoko/Southern Mission Bay, Mission Bay rest area, Motutere Bay motor camp and boat ramp and Waitahanui.

The Medical Officer of Health, Dr Jim Miller, has advised people to make their own visual assessment of areas not included in the health warning as toxic algae can occur in other areas of the lake at any time.
