The Prime Minister has revealed that New Zealand will move to alert level 1 at 11.59pm tonight, while Auckland will move to alert level 2 until 11.59pm on Monday 22 February.
The announcement comes after three new Covid-19 cases were found in the community today.
One of the new cases confirmed this afternoon was a close contact of case A – the daughter who was confirmed Covid-19 positive with her father and mother on Sunday.
They went to Papatoetoe High School together.
The second and third new confirmed cases are family of the first.
The source of the first family's infection is still a mystery.
Health officials have been racing to trace the contacts of the two students.
