Changes to isolation rules

Today Chris Hipkins said the isolation period for a positive case will be reduced from 10 days to seven days coming into effect on Friday 11 March at 11.59pm.  MIQ isolation will also be reduced to 7 days. 

Positive cases will need a RAT on day three and seven. If a positive test is returned they will need to isolate for seven days from the positive test. If people are still showing symptoms after seven days they will need to get another test, Hipkins said that will be a very small number of people.

If someone tests positive in your household less than three months after you've had Covid, you won't have to isolate again.
