Description

An initiative to ensure new arrivals are complying with lockdown protocol can only operate if New Zealanders consent to having their location tracked, Police Commissioner Mike Bush has announced.

The new system allows police to monitor the whereabouts of Kiwis who have returned to New Zealand amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Within the last 24 hours, police have made contact with roughly 4000 new arrivals, Bush confirmed during the daily press conference on Thursday.
