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.

Reportedly the incident occurred at the Hudson Café in Brisbane Airport. Two individuals from a red zone country were in the Café at the same time as green zone passengers.

Both of the two red zone passengers returned negative results prior to departure, coming from their home country. Second test results were taken today and returned as weak positive for the first person and a negative result for the second person.

Following the new announcement made by the Ministry, three flights were affected as a result.

*The first was Air New Zealand flight 202 from Brisbane arriving today in Christchurch at around 4.30 pm;
*A second is Air New Zealand 146 from Brisbane arriving today in Auckland at around 5.30 pm;
*The third being Qantas QF 135 from Brisbane, arriving today in Christchurch at the same time as 146.

Queensland Health informed New Zealand's health officials that both the red zone passengers were wearing masks. Social distancing was used, and they were not symptomatic.

Additional testing will be undertaken.
