5 Transitional, savings, and related provisions

The transitional, savings, and related provisions set out in Schedule 1 have effect according to their terms.

6 Application of order

This order applies to the whole of New Zealand.

6A Managed isolation or quarantine may replace self-isolation

(1)

A person who is self-isolating under Part 1A, 1C, or 1D (the relevant self-isolation Part) must instead be isolated or quarantined in accordance with Part 1 in a situation described by subclause (2) or (3).

(2)

One situation is that—

(a)

a medical officer of health or a health protection officer has assessed that—

(i)

the person is at high risk of having COVID-19 or, if the person were to have COVID-19, they would be at high risk of transmitting it; and

(ii)

the risk is not adequately managed by self-isolation under the relevant self-isolation Part; and

(b)

the chief executive has confirmed that there is capacity for the person to be isolated or quarantined.

(3)

Another situation is that—

(a)

the decision maker under clause 15G(e), 15GS(1)(da), or 15HG(1)(f) is satisfied that the person needs to leave to move to a place of isolation or quarantine (for example, for temporary or emergency care while they are sick); and

(b)

the chief executive has confirmed that there is capacity for the person to be isolated or quarantined.

(4)

The person’s period of isolation or quarantine under Part 1

(a)

has the start time defined by clause 10 (so that any period of self-isolation is counted towards it); and

(b)

ends—

(i)

at the time determined by a medical officer of health or a health protection officer; but

(ii)

no later than the 10th day after their start time, unless the officer is satisfied that—

(A)

the person does not meet the low-risk indicators; or

(B)

the person has received a positive result from any COVID-19 test.

(5)

Despite subclauses (1) to (4), the relevant self-isolation Part again applies to the person instead of Part 1 if a medical officer of health or a health protection officer is satisfied that the basis for applying Part 1 no longer applies.

(6)

To avoid doubt, if the relevant self-isolation Part again applies to the person, their period of self-isolation remains as defined by that Part (so that it ends when it would have even if Part 1 had not applied).

Clause 6A: inserted, at 11.59 pm on 27 February 2022, by clause 6 of the COVID-19 Public Health Response (Isolation and Quarantine and Other Matters) Amendment Order 2021 (SL 2021/428).

6B Director-General may specify matters by notice

(1)

The Director-General may, by notice, specify anything that this order says may or must be specified by notice.

(2)

A notice made under this clause is secondary legislation (see Part 3 of the Legislation Act 2019 for publication requirements), unless it applies only to 1 or more named persons, places, or things.

(3)

A notice made under this clause for 1 or more named persons (an individual notice) must be notified in writing to the applicant and any named person or persons.

(4)

A notice, or an amendment to a notice, must be published (for secondary legislation) or notified (for individual exemptions) as soon as practicable after it is made.

(5)

An exemption, or an amendment to an exemption, may come into force before it is published (for secondary legislation) or notified (for individual exemptions) if the Director-General is satisfied that the exemption or amendment should come into force urgently.

(6)

In that case,—

(a)

the effect of the exemption (or amendment) must be publicly announced before it comes into force; and

(b)

the exemption or amendment must be published under the Legislation Act 2019 (for secondary legislation) or notified (for individual exemptions) as soon as practicable after it comes into force.
