    Question Self Isolation Pilot

    Wondering how this is going to go..

    https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/hea...delta-outbreak

    Cabinet has decided on a pilot for a self-isolation MIQ trial where people can do isolation at home, Ardern said.

    It will be for 150 people and focus on businesses and employees required to travel internationally for work.
    More details will be provided on Wednesday.

    What a wider range of options for safe return, and looking at shorter terms of isolation in the future, Ardern said.
    This will help with the bottle neck at the border.

    I remember initially being for self isolation when they introduced MIQ fees as a way to help out people who might not be able to afford it and them being a barrier to people returning home.

    Having been through MIQ, and seeing this round of delta, pretty happy to say I was definitely wrong then and reverse that position.

    Hopefully by that point vaccinations will be wide enough, but... I dunno. Not sure if you can trust people not to skip lockdown or not.

    I await the details, but if they are going to rely on honesty itís doomed to failure.

    Tracking Bracelets might be an answer but imagine the outrage.

    Iíd just lay the cards on the table and say if you want into NZ you must wear a tracking bracelet for a week/fortnight or you donít enter. Donít care how important you think you are. About turn!
    Global Warming is Mann made.

    Do not regret growing older. It is a privilege denied to many.

    The problems we face today are because the people who work for a living are now outnumbered by those who vote for a living.

    the devil is in the detail a per usual.
    i hope it doesn't go as well as they self isolation did at the start of this pandemic. eg the case of the infected nurse who went straight to work with the elderly instead of doing the self isolation.

    we have seen that people will do almost anything to get out of doing the isolation. i expect it will be the same, but with no security and no check ups.
    Tweak it till it breaks

    Agree with you completely! Haven't seen Daughter in Cairns for nearly 4 years. Were supposed to go at the time of the first Covid-19. Had to cancel all.

    Have you seen those collars you put on dogs that give them a buzz when they get too close to a wire around your property? That is what they should have with ankle bracelets would work for MIQ and for crims

    Same for me. Daughter and grand-kids in Sydney.

    I love Aus and the Aussies, and did a "Annual Pilgrimage" there for years.

    But the thing I've never got my head around is the competition between the States.

    They will never agree on principle.

    Now look at NSW & QLD. They share the same boarder, but NSW reports 1000's of Covid cases and QLD Nil.

    Has to be a Case Study here.
