Covid-19 Response Minister Chris Hipkins announced on Tuesday that quarantine-free travel between New Zealand Western Australia would resume from midday tomorrow.
Those who have been identified as contacts to positive cases across the trans-Tasman bubble will have to get a test and return as negative, self-isolate for 14 days before they can fly to New Zealand.
On April 23, flights were paused due to concerns of a potential Covid-19 outbreak after a flight carrying passengers from Perth to Melbourne was found to have one person who had the virus.
For now, Minister Hipkins says travel will remain ‘paused' until the results from additional testing come along.
“Western Australia recorded no new cases of Covid-19 overnight, and New Zealand health officials were again in contact with their Australian counterparts today. Our risk assessment remains that the public health risk to New Zealand is low,” Minister Hipkins said.
“Some additional information from Western Australia, however, particularly more results from the additional testing that has been done, are expected to be available tomorrow.”
