Quarantine restrictions are planned to be canceled on Tuesday. New Zealand will not open borders yet. This decision was made due to the fact that the infection in the country is completely eradicated.
The country will move to the first of four levels of national anxiety from 00:00 Tuesday. All public and private events can take place without restrictions, retail trade and the hotel sector can operate normally, and public transport is fully resumed.
Since the start of the pandemic in New Zealand, 1 504 cases of coronavirus infection and 22 deaths have been reported.
As we reported before, Switzerland plans to open its borders to European Union countries, EFTA members and Britain on June 15, the government said on Friday, bringing forward its timetable as cases of the coronavirus decrease.
Justice Minister Karin Keller-Sutter informed her cabinet colleagues of the move, which goes further than an original plan to open borders with neighbours Germany, Austria and France on June 15 and aim to add more countries by July 6.
