The Government is in discussions around whether the travel bubble with Victoria will be impacted over Melbourne's latest Covid-19 community outbreak.
A fifth community case was confirmed today in Melbourne, while new restrictions are being put in place after four other Covid-19 cases were reported yesterday.
"Our health officials are in close contact with their counterparts in Melbourne," Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said this afternoon.
"We're just at the moment having a discussion as a team as to whether or not that will mean if there any flow-on impacts for the two-way travel."
She said she expects Covid-19 Response Minister Chris Hipkins to give an update on the situation later today.
The latest pause on the travel bubble was with New South Wales earlier this month, lifting a few days later.
