Covid-19: Two motel units set aside for Queenstown self-isolation not enough for mayor

From Morning Report, 7:09 am on 8 December 2021

Just two motel units have been set aside in Queenstown for people who might need to isolate with Covid-19 in the Christmas holidays - despite tens of thousands of Aucklanders about to hit town.

Mini-MIQs are being set up all over the country in places that don't have them already in case people who live there - or are visiting - can't isolate at home.

But Queenstown's mayor is worried, saying it's too little and it's being sorted way too late.
