Two women who have broken New Zealand's Covid-free status are now self-isolating in the Hutt Valley - and it's hoped that won't affect confidence in Wellington.

The two women, one in her 30s and one in her 40s, arrived in Auckland from the UK on June 7, before they were granted an exemption to leave quarantine on June 13 and drive themselves to Wellington following the death of a family member.

The pair tested positive for Covid-19 after arriving in the capital. One of the women has been experiencing symptoms, while the other was symptom-free.
