New Zealand drops many of its COVID-19 related requirements


Recommended Posts

New Zealand dropped many of its COVID-19-related requirements on September 12, bringing an end to some of the most restrictive pandemic mandates in the world.


People will no longer be required to wear masks in public places, except healthcare and long-term care facilities; all government- imposed vaccine mandates will end on September 26; and only people with COVID-19, and not their household contacts, will be required to isolate for 7 days. Additionally, the government will no longer require vaccinations for incoming travelers and air crew.


New Zealand experienced its worst COVID-19 surge this year when Omicron killed more residents than any other pandemic surge.

Dropped them IMO because people were rebelling against the mask mandate anyway, and the election is coming up next year. From almost universal mask wearing 2 years ago, mask wearing where I live was almost unusual before they dropped the mandate.

Nobody I know supported them, and they were actually very unpopular.
