Being in managed isolation
What to expect when you are in managed isolation.
The purpose of managed isolation is to ensure people do not have COVID-19 before they return to our communities.
You will be assigned a room in a managed isolation facility for the duration of your stay. This will take into account how many people are with you.
Advice on when you will be able to leave managed isolation.
The Government recovers some of the costs for managed isolation to share the costs in a way that fairly reflects the benefits to both the New Zealand public of having a robust system, and those who leave and enter the country.
People entering New Zealand must stay in managed isolation or quarantine to help stop the spread of COVID-19. Only a small group of people are exempt from being in managed isolation.
If you have COVID-19, or if there is reason to believe you might have COVID-19, then you will need to stay in a quarantine facility for at least 14 days.
