New Zealand is expected to stay under Level 4 lockdown restrictions until at least Tuesday, April 24 at 11.59pm.

The announcement follows today's press briefing with Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and Director-General of Health Dr Ashley Bloomfield on the decision of Alert Level changes.

11 new cases were confirmed in the community and three in Wellington. The total number of cases in this outbreak has risen to 31 — they'd travelled from Auckland by private vehicle and plane.

Cabinet will meet on Monday to review restriction settings — but that will rely on evidence of case numbers and further developments in order to make the moves.

Yesterday 27,899 tests were processed, with the seven-day rolling average being up rolling at 9,085.

Ministry of Health data states testing in Auckland has increased by more than 50 percent with over 24,000 community tests undertaken.

More than 8,000 have been taken at community testing centres and around 16,000 at general practice and urgent care clinics.
