The Ministry of Health said in their 1pm statement that one of the Lakes cases was in Rotorua, however Lakes District Health Board has since confirmed both are Rotorua cases.

One is a household contact of a previously reported case. They were already self-isolating at home when they tested positive.

Investigations are underway to determine any links between the other new case and previously reported cases.

The case in the Western Bay of Plenty is a household contact of a previously reported case and was already self-isolating at home when they tested positive.

There are no further cases to report today associated with Te Akau ki Papamoa School, but the assessment by Toi Te Ora Public Health is that further cases associated with the school are likely.

The total active cases for Bay of Plenty is 62 while Lakes is 28.

Lakes DHB is now at 89 per cent first dose and 80 per cent double dose, while most other regions have now hit at least 90 per cent single dose. Eighty-three per cent of eligible Māori or 472,484 have had their first dose of vaccination, while 69 per cent or 394,946 have had both jabs.
