Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and Director General of Health Ashley Bloomfield are expected to address the nation at 4pm.

This comes as three new cases of Covid-19 were identified outside of the Auckland area on Sunday.

A testing centre has been set up at a marae in the Waikato settlement of Kaiaua today after three community cases of Covid-19 were confirmed in the region.

They are household members of a man with the virus who is in remand at Mount Eden prison in Auckland.

The Ministry of Health says two of the cases went to Mangatangi School and one had symptoms while there.

Meanwhile, the Ministry has announced ....... new cases today. UPDATE WITH MOH NUMBERS FROM 1PM
