There are eight new cases of Covid-19 in the community today and four in managed isolation.

Director-General of Health Dr Ashley Bloomfield says the new community cases are all in Auckland.

Seven of the eight cases are contacts of existing cases, Dr Bloomfield says.

Yesterday, there were four active sub-clusters, today that's down to three.

One of today's new cases was confirmed after a person presented at Waitakere Hospital. This is today's unlinked case. The person was transferred to North Shore Hospital as soon as their test returned positive. They are in isolation in a negative pressure room.

Five members of Waitakere Hospital's emergency department have been stood down and eight patients are being treated as contacts.

There were 12 new community cases of Covid-19 reported in New Zealand yesterday, with all but two epidemiologically linked to previous cases.
