The other two cases are not officially recorded in Saturday’s tally, as they were reported to the Ministry after 9am on Saturday.

So far, the cases have not been linked to a cluster of eight cases in the Far North’s Mangamuka.

Northlanders are being reminded to monitor locations of interest, several of which are in Whangārei, Kaikohe and Kaihu.

The regional remains in alert level 2.

There are five testing centres open in Northland this weekend, including in Kaitaia, Kerikeri, Ōhaeawai, Kaiwaka and Whangārei.

“Testing and vaccination rates yesterday remained relatively steady, and we are encouraging anyone in the region who has symptoms to get a test,” the ministry said.
