The Ministry of Health was made aware of the cases last night.

It was revealed this morning that both of the cases were unvaccinated and had not been using the contact tracing app regularly.

Both people live in the Bishopdale area.

One of the cases travelled to Auckland to provide childcare. They were not considered infectious when they travelled back to Christchurch on October 15.

The other case is a truck driver who worked for four days during their infectious period.

The company they work for is assisting with tracking their whereabouts during those days.
