COVID-19 Public Health Response Amendment Bill (No 2) 2021


When the COVID-19 Public Health Response Act was drafted last year, we did not know how long our COVID-19 response would need to last or how complex and comprehensive delivering the system would become. 

While the Act has served us well, there are a number of changes that will help it operate more efficiently and further strengthen New Zealand’s COVID-19 response. A number of very specific issues are also being rectified.

You can find out more about the proposed changes in the fact sheets below.
