Covid 19 coronavirus: Harsher new testing regime for UK and US arrivals to New Zealand

A NZ Herald article.

People returning to New Zealand from high-risk Covid-19 countries like Britain and the United States will from today be required to undergo a more rigorous testing regime.

Arrivals will have the first of three Covid-19 tests on the day they arrive or the next day, and then have follow-up tests on day three and day 12. Previously, arrivals had to undergo tests only on day three and day 12 in managed isolation.

The countries considered to be most at risk by the Ministry of Health are Britain and the US. The next tier down are countries such as India, Pakistan and Mexico.
