There are no new COVID-19 cases in the community. There is one new positive case in managed isolation to report today. This comes after Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced Auckland would return to Level 1 from midday today.
All tests of contacts connected to the February outbreak have returned negative results. Five remaining close contacts tested today have been in quarantine for the past 12 days. Results are expected shortly.
All contacts of the air crew case have returned negative results from initial testing.
Wastewater sites around Auckland and at other sites in New Zealand continue to return negative results with the exception of the South Western Interceptor in Auckland. This site is near the Auckland quarantine facility, so positive results are expected to be seen there and levels detected are consistent with those seen over the last month.
There are 6 community testing locations available in Auckland today. These are in Wiri, Otara, Balmoral, New Lynn, Henderson and Northcote.
