Auckland: Three new COVID-19 cases have been identified in New Zealand, linked to an Auckland high school.
Earlier on Tuesday a student of Papatoetoe High School in East Auckland returned a positive test. It was followed by two of the student’s siblings, a teenager and an infant, also testing positive.
The teenager also attends the school and works at a Kmart store in nearby Botany.
The Ministry of Health said the Kmart worker had attended the store on February 19 and 20 from 4 to 10pm. Thirty-one of the worker’s colleagues have been identified as close contacts and are self-isolating.
