The tests were conducted prior to the Vanuatu squad departing their team hotel for the stadium.
Vanuatu would not have had enough players to field a team.
OFC is yet to make a statement on the future of the game.
In the other game on the opening day, beaten finalists from the last tournament in 2017, the Solomon Islands beat the Cook Islands 2-0.
New Zealand's opening game is against Papua New Guinea tomorrow.
