National’s plan for secure borders

has released its plans for secure borders in the fight against Covid-19. Their main points are:

  • Establishing a dedicated NZ Border Protection Agency which would oversee the work done by Customs, Immigration, Av Sec, MPI and more
  • Requiring inbound travellers to provide evidence of a negative Covid-19 test before arrival in NZ
  • Pre-boarding thermal imaging and again at points of entry
  • Compulsory contact tracing for border workers and other frontline staff
  • Rapid deployment of a bluetooth contact tracing system
  • A test on demand system with a maximum 60 minute wait

Some of this stuff should have occurred months ago such as thermal imaging at airports. People have a choice about voting for the status qup or voting for a more secure border.
