Prime Minsiter Jacinda Ardern on her way into the theatrette.
Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and Health Director Dr. Ashley Bloomfield will hold an urgent press conference on Omicron at 11am on Sunday.
The press conference was previously unplanned, with media told of it soon after 9am on Sunday morning.
There have been several border-related Omicron cases in recent days, with several airline, airport, and MIQ workers infected.
Ardern indicated last week that Omicron community spread would likely result in the entire country being placed in the “red” traffic light setting.
That setting is not a lockdown but would restrict large gatherings and hospitality.
