Watch live: Megan Woods and Darryn Webb on managed isolation and quarantine facilities

Canterbury Mornings with Chris Lynch

Minister in charge of managed isolation Megan Woods and Air Commodore Darryn Webb told Newstalk ZB's Chris Lynch they were visiting hotel premises in Christchurch today."We are always learning how to do things better," Webb said.He said the assumption is people staying in the premises have Covid and appropriate precautions are taken.Woods said one of things when visiting the facilities that gave them confidence was talking to the teams."You can just see how into the detail the staff are, and how much they really care about all the responsibilities."The facilities had been chosen due to suitability for security, which continued to be "layered up"."Any breach that is a danger to public health is reported," Woods said.The pair were asked about Deputy Prime Minister Winston Peter's idea to shift facilities to military camps."We are not adverse to other kinds of facilities," Woods said."They are conversations we have had, where they would be, but we do already have these hotels, and they are also providing a way to keep them operating."Some of them are exceptionally good in terms of their layout."But we've always been open to purpose-built facilities."This could include temporary houses, Woods said.As the country could be doing this a while, they did need to look at more permanent options, Woods said.Regarding testing, they were now up to 99 per cent of all staff being tested, Woods said.They'd recognised an issue, and were now addressing it.Air Commodore Darryn Webb said the situation was challenging, and at the heart was people."We have to be realistic in our expectations. And we are not adverse to improving as we go."Manouvering into a low-trust model, with few barriers, was not easy, Webb said.Kiwis had a "she'll be right" attitude, and were not so good when being told what to do, Webb said.That's why there needed to be a balance between treating the facilities between prisons and hotels."Spending 14 days locked in a room is not easy."Woods said taking over security now meant they would all be paid at least the living wage."Paying people the living wage does lift behaviour."The Government would now also be doing the training, health and safety and professional development."This is the Government saying this is very important, and so we are doing to directly hire [security staff] ourselves."There have been issues with security, not seen issues like in Victoria, but about us looking everyday at how can make more secure."When I walk into the facilities and see the leadership, it is really good. I want to make sure the staff have secutiry of work, are being paid a decent wage."In terms of improvements, Webb said it was a human-based system, and it was unrealistic for there not to be small mistakes.But increasing use of technology would play a big part in this.Woods was asked about the recent announcement of thermal CCTV technology.Webb said it was just ability to see by day and by night.It was a system that knew if people went outside a geographical area.At the moment they relied on people seeing things. Now, combining human expertise with technology, if there is a door ajar an alarm will go off.Somewhere between 450 and 500 people were returning to New Zealand from overseas, Webb said.But this was a fraction of the thousands at the start of Covid-19.
