Live updates: Covid-19 community case in Auckland


There is a new community case of Covid-19 in Auckland which health officials are now investigating.

In a statement released this afternoon, the Ministry of Health said further updates would be provided once some more information was available.

Ministers will be meeting later today to establish the next moves.

The link between the case and the border or managed isolation has not been established.

The Auckland Regional Public Health unit is now undertaking interviews with the case so that it can begin tracing contacts.

Aucklanders are being encouraged to social distance and exercise caution.

“While we collect more specific information all New Zealanders are reminded of the basic public health measures of mask wearing and hand washing,” it said.

“In particular anyone in Auckland catching public transport this afternoon or who cannot socially distance in public spaces should wear a mask as a precaution.”
