Explanatory note

This note is not part of the order, but is intended to indicate its general effect.

This order revokes the COVID-19 Public Health Response (Required Testing) Order 2020, which requires certain workers at the border and at isolation and quarantine facilities to undergo regular testing for COVID-19. The revocation takes effect on 30 June 2022.

A revocation order has no ongoing purpose after it has taken effect, so this order revokes itself on 30 July 2022.

Approval by resolution required

This order must be approved by resolution of the House of Representatives before the expiry of the period described in section 16(2) of the COVID-19 Public Health Response Act 2020. If this does not happen, and if the order has not already revoked itself, the order is revoked on the expiry of that period.

Issued under the authority of the Legislation Act 2019.

Date of notification in Gazette: 16 June 2022.

This order is administered by the Ministry of Health.
