During his media stand-up in the afternoon, Director-General of Health Dr Ashley Bloomfield said while this is positive news, "we are not out of the woods yet".
He says were are four new cases in managed isolation being reported on Tuesday.
"These were identified at day one of testing."
A total of 8880 tests were carried out in New Zealand on Monday, 7000 of these were in the Auckland area alone.
Dr Bloomfield is expecting high testing numbers again today and tomorrow.
As of February 14, 70,000 Covid tests have been carried out in Auckland.
Dr Bloomfield says this is equivalent to four per cent of the population.
While the news is looking good, Dr Bloomfield is urging people to remain at home if they are sick.
He says people should limit their movement and interactions with other people until they no longer have symptoms or have received a negative Covid test.
