The Ministry of Health expects cases to continue under Alert Level 1 where they’ve routinely appeared at the border in recent returnees.

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

Media updates of COVID-19 will be reduced to four times a week.

The updates are scheduled to be on a Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday; however, the Ministry’s website will be updated with case numbers in line with these media updates.

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

“The public can be assured that the Ministry will report any significant development, including any case emerging in the community, sooner if required.”

Times of the announcements will remain at 1 pm on those days listed, and the new arrangement of days begins on Wednesday.
