No community cases; 2 new cases and 2 historical cases of Covid in managed isolation

There are no cases of COVID-19 to report in the community today.

There are two new cases of COVID-19 to report in recent returnees in managed isolation facilities since yesterday’s update. In addition, there are two historical cases identified at the border to report.

Two previously reported cases from Monday have been reclassified as ‘under investigation.’ As a result, these two cases have been removed from our tally of confirmed cases.

Three previously reported cases have now recovered. The number of active cases in New Zealand is 29.

Since 1 January 2021, there have been 114 historical cases, out of a total of 706 cases. This is an increase of three cases including two cases reported today and a previously reported case from 19 July which has been reclassified as historical.

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

Our total number of confirmed cases is 2,523.

Returnees from Australia

Quarantine Free Travel with Australia remains suspended. Eligible travellers needing to return to New Zealand from all Australian states (except New South Wales) were provided a 7-day return window which ended at 11.59pm on Friday 30 July.

As a result of Queensland’s decision over the weekend to enter a three-day lockdown in parts of the state, contact tracing staff are reminding all travellers who returned from the Australian state returned since last Monday, to check locations of interest on the Queensland Health website and monitor for any symptoms of COVID-19.
