The Ministry of Health has confirmed two new cases of COVID-19 in the Nelson Tasman region, bringing the total number of active cases to three.
All three cases are in isolation. A small number of close contacts are in quarantine awaiting test results.
Dr Stephen Bridgman, Nelson Marlborough Medical Officer of Health thanks the cases for their co-operation, which has meant the Nelson Marlborough Public Health Service has been able to determine an initial range of locations of interest across Nelson, Richmond and Hope.
Dr Bridgman says that investigations are ongoing to determine the source of infection.
