Today we are reporting 6,242 community cases, 553 hospitalisations and 11 deaths.

The seven-day rolling average of case numbers continues to decline, with today's seven-day rolling average at 7,986 – last Monday it was 10,169.

The number of reported community cases is expected to continue to fluctuate day to day, but the overall trend remains an overall reduction in reported cases.

Please note that because of the Easter public holidays, some of our usual reported breakdowns are unavailable. Apologies for any inconvenience.

COVID-19 deaths

Today we are sadly reporting the deaths of 11 people with COVID-19. These deaths take the total number of publicly reported deaths with COVID-19 to 597 and the seven-day rolling average of reported deaths is 14.

Age and location breakdowns of the people who have died over the past two days are unavailable today.

This is a very sad time for whānau and friends and our thoughts are with them.

Easter weekend reminder

We are reminding you that if you are travelling home today from your Easter break, you should have plans in place in the event you contract COVID-19 or are identified as a household contact of a case.

You would need to self-isolate and likely remain wherever you test positive or become a household contact, so there may be extra costs involved in paying for additional accommodation and changing your travel plans.

If you have used your own vehicle to travel, you can travel back to your home to isolate, taking public health measures to ensure you don’t infect anyone on your way home – such as maintaining social distance and using self-service petrol stations.

However, if you have used public transport or travelled between islands, you won’t be able to isolate at your home. It is important you have a plan and the ability to isolate where you are holidaying, if you need to do so.

There are three actions everyone can do to help protect themselves and others.

Firstly – be up to date with vaccinations, including a booster if you’ve not yet had one.

Secondly – wear a mask. Masks are still required in many indoor settings. A good rule of thumb is to wear a mask in indoor public settings as we know that mask use halves the risk of spread of COVID-19. You must also wear a face mask on all flights and public transport, in taxi and ride-share services — unless you are exempt.

And thirdly – stay home and avoid others if you’re unwell, isolating or waiting for the results of a COVID-19 test.

For guidance if you or someone you know tests positive or becomes a household contact, visit the Ministry of Health website.

For more information on mask use at Orange, visit the Unite Against COVID-19 website.
