Auckland is now at Alert Level 3

The Team from Neighbourly.co.nz

**UPDATED:** 1.23pm Sunday 28 February

The Prime Minister and the Director-General of Health have provided an update to media in the Beehive.

Ardern has confirmed that health authorities have found a possible person to person link for how Case M and N picked up Covid-19. This could eliminate concern that there are other chains of transmission to identify.

Ashley Bloomfield asked people to keep an eye out for atypical symptoms
"This new variant of the virus, the B117, does seem to be presenting with symptoms that are not the typical respiratory symptoms," he said.

If you have muscle aches, do consider this might be a Covid-19 symptom.

**UPDATED:** 12.54 Sunday 28 February

Auckland is now at Alert Level 3 and the rest of the country is at Alert Level 2 until at least March 6.
