Australia resumes green travel zone with New Zealand

    Australia‘s Minister for Health and Aged Care Greg Hunt stated (31-Jan-2021) Acting Chief Medical Officer (CMO) Professor Michael Kidd recommended the Commonwealth not extend the pause in safe travel zone flights from New Zealand beyond 14:00, 31-Jan-2021. The Commonwealth has accepted the advice, with green zone services resuming on the afternoon of 31-Jan-2021. The Acting CMO noted services from New Zealand are sufficiently low risk given New Zealand’s strong public health response to coronavirus. Given there is still a small risk of further associated cases being detected in New Zealand, with an abundance of caution, the Acting CMO has recommended pre and post service screening be implemented for the safe travel zone operations for the next ten days.
