Coronavirus: List of locations visited by two new Auckland COVID-19 cases

The Ministry of Health has released a list of locations visited by the two new community COVID-19 cases.

The two people completed their managed isolation in the same facility and at the same time as the Northland case.

On Wednesday night Director-General of Health Dr Ashley Bloomfield said it is likely they contracted the virus towards the end of their stay.

"While we still can't categorically rule these out as historical infections, test results so far indicate the two people may have contracted COVID-19 towards the end of their stay in managed isolation, after returning two negative tests each during their stay," Dr Bloomfield said.

"It's too early to make a firm conclusion. Genome sequencing results, which are expected tomorrow, and serology results expected the following day, will help develop the picture further."

The Ministry of Health also released the list of locations visited by the pair and is urging anyone who visited the locations during the time period, or anyone in Auckland with symptoms, to call Healthline, self isolate and get tested.

"It's important the right people isolate and get tested, so we don't overwhelm testing centres," Dr Bloomfield said.

"We understand that many will be anxious, but it's important to remember we are carrying out these measures as a precaution. There is no evidence so far that suggests community transmission - but we need the right people to isolate and get tested."
