The Herald reports:
The freedoms New Zealanders enjoy under the level 1 Covid-19 alert level rely on ongoing vigilance, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern says.
And she has a stern message to the 367 people who have left 14 days’ managed isolation without being tested and had not returned contact from the Ministry of Health.
“Do your bit, get back in contact. It’s a small thing that you can do as a member of our team of 5 million.”
You know maybe you shouldn’t have released them!
It is easy to test someone when they are in an isolation facility.It is far harder to do so once they have left. This is why it was such a fail that over 1,200 people were released without testing.
