The Director-General of Health Dr Ashley Bloomfield will hold an ‘unscheduled’ press briefing today at 1pm.

Fronting media in Wellington, the reason for the conference was not immediately known but now confirmed to be for an Auckland border worker who tested positive for COVID-19.

Neither COVID-19 Response Minister Chris Hipkins nor Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern will appear in this media event.


According to reports as thisquality understands, the PM cancelled a briefing in Dunedin this morning over fog from bad weather.

She will be staying in Auckland today and later meeting with the media at 2:30 pm.
