Pakistani cricketers are on their "final warning" after breaking managed isolation rules in Christchurch.
The rules had been broken despite "clear, consistent and detailed communication of expected behaviour", the spokeswoman was quoted as saying.
Six members of the Pakistan cricket squad, which is now on a tour to New Zealand, have tested positive for the coronavirus, New Zealand Cricket (NZC) said on Thursday.
New Zealand Cricket (NZC) said two of the six positives had been deemed "historical", with the remaining four said to be new.
Pakistan's official cricket website said the team departed for New Zealand on Monday.
Bloomfield said CCTV showed members of the tour party breaching social distancing protocols.
Meanwhile, the country's director general of health, Ashley Bloomfield, said in a statement: "It is a privilege to come to New Zealand to play sport, but in return teams must stick to the rules that are created to keep Covid-19 out of our communities".
In a statement, the Ministry said that the team as a whole has been issued with a final warning.
"It's important to note that all incidents of breaches occurred within the facility and there is no risk to the public".
Through strict quarantine measures, aggressive testing and snap lockdowns, New Zealand has largely eradicated community transmission of the virus, registering just 1,684 cases since the pandemic began. All players were tested four times before their departure from Lahore to New Zealand and were negative on each occasion.
NZC said it was having discussions with the tourists to ensure they understood the quarantine requirements.
New Zealand Cricket (NZC) while confirming the news said that members had violated the Standing Operating Procedures (SOPs) on the first day of isolation.
