So vaccinated workers from other countries can come in but skip MIQ, but anyone from Auckland has to meet the same rules as international arrivals with a negative test within three days to cross a border within the country.
I'm going to assume you are talking about the RSE workers, in which case you'd be talking about workers from a country that has no history of covid, that are required to be at least partially vaccinated and will be isolated at their place of employment until they have produced both a day 0 and day 5 negative test?
Vs Aucklanders, who have covid circulating in the community, and we'd rather not have them circulating it around the country on their cute trips to Wanaka?
Oh yes, madness. /S
