Poll: Do you support the strict new border rules?

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Virtually all NZ arrivals, except from Australia and Pacific Islands, will now need a negative Covid test before coming in, the Government has announced.
Covid-19 Response Minister Chris Hipkins on Tuesday gave Director-General of Health Ashley Bloomfield new powers, which means he can now easily require negative tests for arrivals from all countries.
It comes as Covid-19 surges around the world, in sharp contrast to New Zealand, where there is no current community transmission. Both the US and UK are experiencing unprecedented peaks in Covid-19 and nearly 2 million people have now died from the virus globally.

Push to get every Kiwi scanning, every time

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Come on Neighourly folk remember to scan, every time you go out.
As new highly transmissible Covid-19 strains send countries into second and third lockdowns, Stuff is forging ahead with its “Stop! Scanner time” campaign to remind Kiwis of the importance to keep scanning QR codes, should there be a community outbreak.
Everyone – every single one of us – needs to be scanning the NZ Covid Tracer app, or signing in on a sheet of paper, every single time.
Come on Neighourly folk remember to scan, every time you go out.
