The Ministry of Health grounded all flights from the state on Saturday night after a security guard at a managed isolation facility and his two housemates tested positive for Covid-19.

No new community cases have been reported, and the risk to public health in New Zealand is now considered low. 

But anyone who visited a location of interest cannot travel here within fourteen days of exposure. 

Around 750 passengers who travelled either directly or indirectly between Western Australia and New Zealand between 27 April and 1 May were being contacted yesterday by the Ministry of Health’s contact tracing team.
