Guests at managed isolation and quarantine (MIQ) facility the Novotel Auckland Airport have had their stays extended by health officials, Newshub reports. It comes as they await the results of genome sequencing of two positive day 12 COVID-19 cases at the facility, which were announced on Monday. The Ministry of Health says,”We do sometimes extend the stay of returnees, based on public health requirements, when health officials need time to investigate cases. The safety of returnees and that of all New Zealanders is our highest priority.”
