It's the 11th day a row the country has recorded no new cases of Covid-19.

There were also no new deaths reported today, with the national death toll remaining at 22.

Yesterday, there were 654 lab tests carried out, bringing the total number of tests completed to date in New Zealand to 282,263. The lower testing number is typical for a public holiday.

There is no one in New Zealand hospitals seeking treatment or care for Covid-19.

However, in a statement, the Ministry of Health reminded Kiwis that if they have any respiratory symptoms they should seek advice from Healthline, their GP or after-hours clinic about getting tested. Testing is free.  

The NZ COVID Tracer app has now recorded 482,000 registrations – up by 6000 since yesterday.

There was no live 1pm briefing today, with the Ministry of Health releasing the numbers in a statement instead.
