Media briefings and press releases will be sent out a lot less due to the most recent returnee cases appearing at the border in managed isolation facilities.

Briefings will be held on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday to reflect the changes.

“On those days, the Ministry will report cases that have tested positive in managed isolation in the preceding days since the last update,” a spokesman said to thisquality.

“We expect this to continue to be the case while we remain in Alert Level 1 with managed isolation requirements in place.”

The Ministry of Health can assure the public that any significant developments, including those that emerge in the community, will be prioritised for release to the public.
