New Zealand arrivals have been asked to monitor their Health for the next 14 days after a reported green zone breach occurred at a Brisbane Airport café.
The Ministry of Health told thisquality in a statement on Thursday evening that health authorities advised passengers on arrival into the country to look for any symptoms related to Covid-19 that may arise. The risk was assessed to be deemed as low to the community.
