Scarce details for returnees on MIQ hotel exodus

From Morning Report, 7:21 am on 12 November 2021

A mass departure from MIQ hotels starts on Sunday, as new rules for international arrivals shorten the stay to seven days followed by a three day isolation at home.

MIQ officials say each person will be health checked before they leave.

Epidemiologist Michael Baker welcomes the change but says any length of stay in MIQ is now redundant for people planning on heading into Auckland.
