There are four new cases of COVID-19 in managed isolation today, and no new community cases. 

The Ministry of Health says the first case is an international mariner staying at the Sudima in Christchurch, detected at day 15 testing as a close contact of a day 6 case. 

The second case arrived on October 19 from Milan via Singapore and tested positive to routine testing at around day 12.

"They are now in the Auckland quarantine facility," says the Ministry of Health. 

The third case arrived on October 28 from London via Singapore and tested positive to routine testing at around day 3. The person is also now in the Auckland quarantine facility. 

The last case was detected in managed isolation in Auckland, after being given permission to join a family member who recently arrived from overseas.

"The family member has previously been recorded in our positive case totals, so today’s case will be recorded as an import-related case." 

The total number of active cases is 81, and the total number of confirmed cases is 1607. 

Yesterday laboratories completed 3,046 tests for COVID-19, bringing the total number of tests completed to date to 1,104,113.
