In New Zealand they call them ‘managed isolation centres’. It’s where you have to go for 14 days when you arrive in the small island nation in the Pacific Ocean. There are certain exemptions from the mandatory stays in the isolation centres but for the most part the rules apply to New Zealanders and foreigners alike.

Not only do you have to stay in a State-commandeered hotel for a fortnight you also have to pay $3,100 (€1,836) for the experience and that doesn’t include the extra charges for bringing a partner or kids. During your stay you are tested for Covid-19 three times and only then released once all are clear.
