COVID-19 Week 20 - Managed isolation and quarantine

Every person who arrives in New Zealand must be isolated from other people in New Zealand for a minimum period of 14 days (336 hours). This measure is key to preventing the transmission of COVID-19 into our communities.

From 5th October 2020, travellers to New Zealand will need to register on the Managed Isolation Allocation System as the first step to securing their place in managed isolation. This should be done before they book their flight.

For more information see Secure your place in managed isolation.

When they arrive, returnees will be taken to either a managed isolation facility (if they have no symptoms), or to a quarantine facility (if they have symptoms).

Before leaving the facility, a final health check will be carried out confirming the person:
• has not tested positive for COVID-19 or is not a probable case
• does not have symptoms of COVID-19
• has a temperature below 38 degrees Celsius.

For more information see the Managed Isolation and Quarantine website.
