There is a hint of a full pause of the Trans-Tasman bubble.
An automated message on Air New Zealand's general inquiry line says the government had announced an extended pause on quarantine-free travel from Australia.
Cabinet met yesterday afternoon to discuss the worsening situation in Australia and an announcement is expected today.
Auckland University Covid-19 modeller Shaun Hendy told Mike Yardley the risk of cases popping up in other states from the outbreak in New South Wales is still there.
"And I guess the Government's not wanting to leave New Zealanders in large numbers stuck in Australia, so this decision probably reflects that desire."
