Australian traveller who visited Wellington
So far, 2,673 people have been identified as contacts of the Australian person who visited Wellington between 19 and 21 June.
Of those 2,673 total contacts, 2,583 or 97% of people have returned a negative result, and an increase of 78 negative test results since yesterday. An additional four people have had a swab and are awaiting a result, 19 people have been granted a clinical exemption, seven require no further action, and eight have returned overseas, which means their home jurisdiction will be following up with them.
The remaining contacts are being actively followed up by contact tracing teams.
