There is one new case of Covid to report in managed isolation today.
The new case is a traveller from the Netherlands who came to this country via France and the United Arab Emirates. The person tested positive on day zero of their MIQ stay.
The number of active Covid cases in New Zealand is currently 30.

Southeast Queensland remains in lockdown and NZ's Ministry of Health is continuing to remind those who had returned from Queensland on last week's flights to keep checking locations of interest on the Queensland Health website and to monitor for any Covid symptoms.
Contact tracing staff had also identified 2995 people who returned from Victoria between July 25-30.
Of those, 2773 have so far returned a negative test; five have returned overseas and don't need to be followed up; and 85 have been granted a clinical exemption.
Public health units and contact tracing staff are following up with the remaining 132 people.
Those people are now required to isolate until they get a negative day 3 test.
A clinical exemption was granted for a variety of reasons including infants and children and individuals who were unable to test or if an asymptomatic infant is asymptomatic and their parents have had negative test results.
The Mattina remains in quarantine at a secure berth in Bluff.

Meanwhile, there were two positive cases of Covid identified in managed isolation facilities yesterday.
The first person arrived on a flight from Ghana, via the United Arab Emirates, on July 28.
Authorities say the passenger - who is a contact of a previous case - tested positive on day 12 of their routine testing regime.
The second recent arrival touched down last Tuesday, July 31, and tested positive on day 2 of their routine testing programme.
They are said to have come here on a flight from the United Kingdom. However, their full travel history is yet to be confirmed, the ministry reported yesterday.
Yesterday's statement also said that two people who were reported to have Covid-19 on Monday's update have since been reclassified as being "under investigation".
"As a result, these two cases have been removed from our tally of confirmed cases," the ministry said.
Three people who previously tested positive for the deadly virus have since recovered.
Recent arrivals from Queensland urged to check locations of interest
People who have recently arrived from Australia - during the quarantine-free travel bubble - are also being urged to take necessary actions if they realise they have been at a location of interest in Queensland, in particular.
The state is currently in lockdown as it deals with yet another Covid-19 outbreak within the community.
"If people have been at a location of interest at a relevant time, they should immediately isolate at home or appropriate accommodation and call Healthline on 0800 358 5453 for advice on testing."
