Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has tested negative for Covid-19 after being deemed a close contact of a positive case on a flight.
Governor-General Dame Cindy Kiro and a staff member in the Prime Minister's office who were on the flight with her have also had negative results.
Ardern and Dame Cindy Kiro are self-isolating and took PCR tests after they were deemed close contacts of the positive Covid-19 case.
They and their fellow passengers were exposed to the coronavirus on a flight from Kerikeri to Auckland on 22 January.
Ardern is fully vaccinated and received a booster shot on 17 January.
The flight - NZ8273 - was added to the Ministry of Health website as a location of interest on Saturday.
