Bennett: Quarantine for asymptomatic COVID patients to be shortened to 5 days

Prime Minister Bennett says quarantine for coronavirus patients will be shortened to five days for asymptomatic individuals.

Vaccinated people will need two negative antigen tests on the fourth and fifth day to be released from quarantine.

Unvaccinated people will need the test on the fifth day to be at a recognized testing facility, and cannot rely on a home test.
