The Ministry of Health issued a notice to thisquality that two further returnees who completed their managed isolation in the same facility as the Northland Community Case are now under investigation.

They both returned a positive test for COVID-19, but the infections are yet to be confirmed if they are historical or recent.

Urgent testing is being carried out accordingly as a result of the positive tests.

“The two people are asymptomatic and have already completed their managed isolation and previously returned two negative tests,” said the Ministry.

Currently, the two who are positive are self-isolating at home.

“As a precaution, Public Health staff are checking details with the individuals about their movements since they left managed isolation to identify close and casual contacts if contact tracing is required.”
