There are no new community cases of COVID-19 to report on Sunday - Auckland's first day out of alert level 3 restrictions.
A Ministry of Health spokesman said on Sunday that just one new coronavirus case has been detected at the border in the past 24 hours.
"The total number of active cases in New Zealand is 72," the ministry said in a statement.
"Our total number of confirmed cases is 2043."
The announcement comes after Auckland dropped to alert level 2 and the rest of New Zealand to alert level 1 on Sunday morning.
"While it's encouraging to see another day without any community cases, we must all remain vigilant and continue to do our bit," the ministry said.
"This includes staying home if you have any symptoms; if symptomatic phoning Healthline for advice on getting a test - wherever you are in the country; and keeping a record of where you have been at all times."
No new cases of COVID-19 have been detected in the community since last weekend - when Auckland was placed in alert level 3 restrictions.
