New Zealand reported five border cases of COVID-19 and one new community case on Tuesday
The community case is a student at Papatoetoe High School in Auckland. The school was closed last week and was asked to reclose until further notice as a precaution. Every student and staff member has been asked to be retested.
This student lives in a household bubble of six, with a sibling who also attends Papatoetoe High but has also not been at school.
Other family members have been tested, said a ministry statement.
No previously reported cases have recovered. The total number of active cases in New Zealand is 60, and the total number of confirmed cases is 2,007, it said.
