She said the government was working through issues in order to provide similar levels of vaccination in the Pacific at the same time as protection is provided in New Zealand.

The prime minister announced the move after an urgent meeting with other top lawmakers in the Cabinet.

Schools and early childhood centres will stay open for children of essential workers.

Two of the cases also travelled to New Plymouth and visited several tourist locations in north Taranaki over Waitangi weekend, while potentially infectious but before they knew they had symptoms.

Pharmacies and supermarkets will stay open, but other businesses requiring face-to-face interaction will close.

New Zealand was ranked the best performing nation in an index of nearly 100 countries based on containment of the coronavirus.

"We are gathering all of the facts as quickly as we can, and the system that served us so well in the past is really gearing up to do so again", said COVID-19 Response Minister Chris Hipkins.

Although the airport seems a likely source of infection, Hipkins said officials would seek a definitive answer as to where the infection came from and hadn't yet ruled anything in or out.

"Last year we indicated the vaccine would arrive in quarter two, and earlier this year we updated that to quarter one".

"But of course, we will and we have looked at what those exposure sites are in New Zealand and we will be looking at that for anyone coming across the border from New Zealand", he said.

As at 1.30pm, there had been no change to New Zealand's level 1 status, Hipkins said this afternoon.

She says it's a "good, timely reminder too, to everyone, please turn on the Bluetooth function and keep scanning".
