CM – New Zealand pauses travel bubble with NSW

The country has closed its border in response to the rapidly developing coronavirus outbreak in Sydney.

New Zealand has temporarily suspended its travel bubble with NSW in response to the state’s growing coronavirus outbreak.

The break will go into effect Tuesday evening and will be reviewed on Thursday, New Zealand Coronavirus Response Minister Chris said Hipkins, in a statement.

« The break comes into effect from 11:59 p.m. NZT and is initially for 72 hours, » he said.

“This decision follows today’s public health assessment which found that the overall risk to New Zealand public health is currently low, but there are still several unknowns, including a case that is contagious in the Sydney community and an elementary school age child with no clear connection currently made. ”

It comes as the New Zealand Ministry of Health announced late Monday evening that the break on the quarantine-free trip from Victoria to New Zealand will be lifted at 11:59 pm on Tuesday.

Kiwi public health officials said Victoria’s risk of Covid-19 is low and flights between Melbourne and New Zealand may resume.

New Zealand cut the travel bubble with Victoria on May 25 when Melbourne struggled with another local coronavirus outbreak.

« There have been no new cases in Victoria over the past week it is the worrying Delta variant, « said the Ministry of Health.

Australians who have been to one of the exposure sites in Victoria, NSW, Queensland or the ACT in the last 14 days at the specified times are still not allowed to travel to New Zealand .

The announcement comes in time for Victoria’s winter school break, which is slated to begin on Friday.

« Anyone who is currently quarantined in Tasmania and has been in the greater Melbourne area – but not in a specific high-risk area – can leave the quarantine at midnight, ”said the Director of Public Health Dr. Mark Veitch.

« Travel restrictions remain in effect for anyone who was in a high risk Victoria location on the dates and times specified.

 » Anyone planning to travel to Tasmania on the dates specified and times was in one of these high-risk areas, will not be allowed to enter the state. « 

The South Australian police commissioner Grant Stevens announced on Tuesday morning that his state would also be reopened for the metropolis of Melbourne on Friday, but travelers would have to isolate themselves until they get a negative test result on day one.

He said Melburnians would also be banned from visiting high-risk places such as retirement homes and major events that require a covid management plan.

Western Australia and Queensland still have travel restrictions on people coming from metropolitan Melbourne.
