There have been three new cases of COVID-19 in managed isolation confirmed in New Zealand - two in Christchurch and one in Rotorua.
Director-General of Health Dr Ashley Bloomfield said the total number of confirmed cases since COVID-19 started was now 1169.
He said the Rotorua case was a woman in her 30s who arrived from Peru, and everyone who was on the bus to Rotorua with her is being followed up and tested. The bus driver - who was wearing protective equipment - will also be isolated and tested.
She was staying at the Ibis Hotel in Rotorua, but is now being moved into quarantine at the Jet Park Hotel.
Dr Bloomfield said work was being done to establish whether a quarantine section can be set up in Rotorua like the one in Christchurch.
The Christchurch cases are a man in his 70s and a man in his 30s who both arrived from India on 20 June on the same flight and tested positive on day three of their isolation.
Dr Bloomfield said a record number of tests were carried out yesterday - 10,436 - bringing the total number of tests to 368,432.
