Today New Zealand has three new confirmed cases of COVID-19 - bringing the total number of cases in New Zealand to 1,479, says Director of Public Health Dr Caroline McElnay.
The total of confirmed cases is 1,132.
There are no new deaths today. The death toll remains at 19, including 10 from the Rosewood cluster.
There are six people in hospital, none of whom are in ICU.
The number of people who have recovered from COVID-19 is up to 1,252 - up 11 on yesterday's number.
This means 85 per cent of all confirmed and probable cases are now recovered.
New Zealanders awoke on Tuesday to more freedoms at alert level 3, which will remain for at least two weeks.
From Tuesday, people can get takeaways for dinner and to-go coffees from their favourite café, as long as there is no person-to-person contact.
Kiwis will also be able to fish and surf under level 3, and there are an estimated 400,000 people who have return to work.
