It has been 86 days since the last case of coronavirus was acquired locally from an unknown source, said the ministry statement.
Laboratories across New Zealand completed 1,754 tests, bringing the total number of tests completed to date to 455,677.
The ministry reiterated the importance of tests, as part of the country's overall strategy to detect any community case of COVID-19 as quickly as possible.
"We all have a part to play and we're encouraging anyone who is offered a swab to take up that offer," said the ministry. ■
