Chris Hipkins, the nation's minister for COVID-19 reaction, stated: "Waiting till the end of February will improve New Zealand's all-around safety and slow Omicron's eventual reach. There's no suspicion this is disappointing and will worry many holiday projects. Still, it's necessary to put these changes out today, so they can have time to evaluate those goals." Hipkins further stated that New Zealand's Cabinet has decided to other preventive actions. It will also include decreasing the gap between a second Covid-19 vaccine dose and a booster hit from six months to four months. Moreover, raising the necessary length of stay for returning travelers from seven to 10 days in controlled isolation and quarantine.
