Bloomfield expects the remaining test results for the 30 close contacts to be returned on Tuesday.

With three negative results from the high school close contacts group, this means that 12 out of 42 close contacts have turned out to be negative without any new positive overnight cases.

The principal of Papatoetoe High School, Vaughn Couillault, said the school came out with a bang during the test yesterday and expected the same on Tuesday.

Many people were waiting for four hours to be tested, but there was a lot of sensitivity, he said.

Couillault was waiting for public scrutiny to be eased before contacting the family that tested positive for the virus.

Bloomfield said the results that will come out on Tuesday will help determine if there is any chain parallel to the broadcast.

This will help Bloomfield figure out who was first infected by the family, which could help experts identify the source.

This follows an understanding that the daughter in the family reported symptoms to the mother, who works at LSG Sky Chefs, a laundry and catering service from the airline.

Auckland is currently at alert level 3 while the rest of New Zealand is at alert level 2 as the government investigates where the virus came from and how wide it may have spread.
