#CoronavirusNewsDesk – New Zealand reinstates #COVID19 travel bubble with NSW: The country decided to temporarily pause quarantine-free travel on Thursday after two #COVID19 cases were detected in Sydney.
Posted 2h ago, updated 2h ago
Flights from the state will be allowed to land in New Zealand from 9:59pm (local time) on Sunday, provided no new community cases are found.
New Zealand authorities will not allow anyone to enter the country who has been at any of the exposure sites, at the specified times announced by NSW Health, within the previous 14 days.
“Airlines and border officials will be asking people to declare whether they have been at one of the locations of interest,” a New Zealand government statement said.
“If you have, you will not be able to travel from NSW, or any border in Australia, to New Zealand.”
New Zealand’s decision to halt the travel bubble with Australia’s most populous state was due to “several outstanding unknowns”, the country’s COVID-19 Response Minister Chris Hipkins said.
“We weighed this up very carefully. It’s a finely balanced decision,” he said on Thursday.
“We do acknowledge that there’s the potential to disrupt people’s travel.”
Restrictions across Greater Sydney are still in effect, with masks compulsory on public transport and no more than 20 guests allowed in a home.
The restrictions will remain in place until 12:01am on Monday.
Quarantine-free travel to New Zealand from Australia was introduced in April, following the relative success of both countries containing COVID-19.
