There is one new community case of Covid-19 reported today, of a girl linked to the Auckland cluster.

In a statement, the Ministry of Health said the child had been in isolation since 30 August due to being a household contact of a confirmed case.

The case is linked to the Botany sub-cluster which has been genomically linked to the Auckland cluster.

The update on the number of cases comes as Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern is about to announce Cabinet’s decision on whether to shift alert levels.

There was no media conference by health officials today.

Yesterday, two new cases were reported, one a health worker at the Jet Park quarantine facility in Auckland and the other as a returnee to New Zealand in managed isolation.

It also emerged that a person who later tested postive for Covid-19 visited an Auckland gym while infectious. Auckland Regional Public Health Service is asking people who attended the same classes to get tested.
