There are no new cases of Covid-19 to report in the community in New Zealand today.

There are also no new cases to report in recent returnees in managed isolation facilities, since the Ministry of Health's last update yesterday.

"There are two new historical cases detected in managed isolation facilities to report today, as well as a previously reported new case which has now been deemed historical and is not considered infectious," says an MOH spokesperson in a statement released today.

"The case was from Nepal, was reported on May 6 and has already been counted as part of our national tally."

Two previously reported cases have now recovered.

The seven-day rolling average of new cases detected at the border is three.

The total number of active cases in New Zealand today is 27.

"Our total number of confirmed cases is 2288," says the MInistry.

"Since January 1, there have been 61 historical cases, out of a total of 472 cases."

NSW travel pause

The travel pause with New South Wales lifted at midnight last night, following a public health risk assessment.

"The assessment from New Zealand public health officials concluded that the risk to New Zealand from the two community cases reported last week in Sydney remains low," says the Ministry.

"Flights from New South Wales have now resumed. However, anyone who was at a location of interest in Sydney at the times specified must follow NSW health advice regarding isolation and testing.

"In addition, they must not travel to New Zealand within 14 days from when they were at the location."

Travellers who have arrived in New Zealand and have been at a location of interest during the exposure time must immediately self-isolate, and call Healthline on 0800 358 5453 for advice on when they should be tested.

Information about locations of interest visited by the cases is available on the New South Wales health website: https://www.health.nsw.gov.au/Infectious/covid-19/Pages/case-locations-and-alerts.aspx
