Remaining travellers from Queensland reminded to remain vigilant and check locations of interest

Public health officials in New Zealand have this afternoon been in contact with their Queensland counterparts after authorities announced a snap lockdown there.

An eight week suspension on Quarantine Free Travel from Australia took effect last Friday night, however there were additional managed return flights until last night (Friday 30 July) for New Zealanders able to provide a negative pre-departure test.

As a result of today’s decision to enter a three day lockdown in parts of the state, the Ministry of Health is advising anyone who has travelled back to New Zealand since last Monday (26 July) to carefully check locations of interest on the Queensland Health website.
