    COVID-19 Public Health Response Bill

    http://www.legislation.govt.nz/bill/...-Pa4#LMS344177

    This legislation is currently being rushed through Parliament.

    Is it just me or does Subsection 20 (1), (2) and (3) appear to contradict each other?

    Nah, just you. Sections 2 & 3 seem intended to limit the power granted under 1. (In theory at least.)

    ...seems more like giving the cops lots of options to do what they like and muddy the waters when they abuse their new powers...

    Sounds like a conspiracy in the making.

    Rushed Legislation?
    Poorly written?
    By people who have no idea what they are doing?
    Granting the Police new powers with little to no oversight?

    Now, where have I seen that before?

    "The measures in the Bill take account of the particular characteristics of COVID-19 such as its contagious nature and potential for asymptomatic transmission, which create the risk of spread and a need to impose restrictions at an aggregate as well as an individual level.".

    Some people might have an extended home stay... until they're vaccinated
    I didn't think!!! I experimented!!!

    Yes - if they have reasonable grounds to suspect there is a gathering in contravention of Section 11 and to give direction under S 21. If a problem arose later, they would be sure to have had "reasonable grounds" - whether they did or not.

    So would you support a move to introduce mandatory vaccination?
