The Cook Islands government has decided to allow passengers on a flight from New Zealand tomorrow into the country - but they will have to go into quarantine.

A passenger flight on Wednesday left Auckland for Rarotonga with only cargo onboard, after they decided to defer new arrivals following the Northland community Covid case.

Cabinet met in Rarotonga last night to discuss the developing situation.
