The Ministry of Health confirmed to thisquality that there is another Community Case of COVID-19 identified in Auckland.

This new case follows Auckland's February cluster as of recent emergence with newly formed cases.

Within the infectious period, the person was under quarantine. As a result of the quarantine measure taken, no new locations of interest mean there is no risk to the public.
