COVID-19: No new cases in managed isolation or community

No new cases of COVID-19 have been reported in New Zealand on Monday - neither in managed isolation or the community.

New Zealand's total active cases are now 70.

"There is no evidence of community transmission," Director-General of Health Ashley Bloomfield told a news briefing.

"It's nice to be able to report no new cases and, in addition, one previous reported case has recovered."

Pullman Hotel latest

Of the staff at Auckland's Pullman Hotel, linked to three community coronavirus cases reported last week, all but two have now been tested for the virus, COVID-19 Response Minister Chris Hipkins told reporters.

"Thank you to everyone involved in the testing process - thank you again to all of our health workers who have gone over and above," Hipkins said.

Dr Bloomfield said of the 349 returnees that had left the Pullman Hotel between January 9 and 24, 345 people had been tested for COVID-19, returning 340 negative results.

The remaining five test results were pending and expected later on Monday, he said.
