The MOH has confirmed there are no new Covid-19 community cases to report today and six new positive Covid-19 border-related cases in managed isolation.

None of the new positives are related to a border related Covid-19 case in a worker at the Grand Millennium managed isolation facility.

"Ten close contacts have been identified," says a MOH statement. "All have been contacted and are self isolating. Five have returned negative test results and we are awaiting further results."

The worker returned a positive swab after being tested on Tuesday. A second test result yesterday also returned a positive result.

"This person has been transferred to the Auckland quarantine facility," say the MOH.

"Case investigations continue. Auckland public health officials have carried out scoping interviews with the case to determine any locations of interest.

"At this stage, there are no locations of interest to report. If any locations of interest are identified, we will update the Ministry's website and send out push notifications."
