Instead of the current "three plus four" arrangement, where travellers have to quarantine in a designated hotel for three days and spend another four days monitoring their health, arrivals will be given an amber health code for three days, barring them from places like restaurants, bars and gyms but they will be allowed to go to work and attend school, as well as visit places where vaccine pass checks are not mandatory.
