The Covid-19 rollercoaster continues in Auckland after a new community case of Covid-19 was identified this morning.

The Ministry of Health says the 'casual plus' contact, also a student at Papatoetoe High School, tested positive yesterday 13 days after the original index case was last at school on February 10.

And that means all 1500 students plus teachers and some household contacts will all need to be tested again.
