All work in Managed Isolation and Quarantine facilities is now being undertaken by workers who are fully vaccinated. The Government introduced the requirement under the COVID-19 Public Health Response (Vaccinations) Order 2021.
Following recent positive COVID-19 cases at 2 Auckland Managed Isolation facilities, the joint Ministry of Health and Managed Isolation and Quarantine Technical Advisory Group has been conducting reviews into potential sources of transmission. This will include an investigation of ventilation.
One year ago today managed isolation became mandatory for travellers arriving into New Zealand. The joint heads of Managed Isolation and Quarantine, Megan Main and Brigadier Jim Bliss, have paid tribute to the efforts of those who’ve contributed to the past year of MIQ.
