There are nine new cases of Covid-19 in New Zealand - five in the community and four imported from overseas and caught in managed isolation.
All of the community cases are epidemiologically linked. Three are linked to the Mt Roskill church cluster and two are household contacts of existing cases.
The church cluster is linked to the Auckland cluster via genome sequencing. It is yet to be epidemiologically linked. Health Minister Chris Hipkins said there are potential links and authorities are following leads.
There are 131 active cases in the country. 107 of these are in the community.
Yesterday, 7219 tests were processed.
