An Australian couple who travelled to New Zealand for a skiing holiday have ended up in MIQ for two weeks in a Christchurch hotel, all because they couldn't produce a negative Covid-19 test on arrival. David Hodgson, a Brisbane doctor and his wife Ann flew from Brisbane to Queenstown for what was supposed to be a four day ski trip on the 19th of July. But as Ann explained to Nathan Rarere, that's when the situation turned sour.
