Fingers crossed! Dave Guerin on The Border Issue

Summary:
From Dave Guerin's excellent Tertiary Insights newsletter ($):Quarantine Winston Peters was supportive of opening up now to international students. That comment came as Jacinda Ardern announced officials and industry representatives were working on a Trans-Tasman bubble. She said that it could be in place by September, but we suspect she’s continuing to underpromise so that she can overdeliver on an opening in, say, Jul. Officials are also working on international student quarantine options. The ODT had more on SIT’s proposals for a student quarantine centre in Queenstown, which is supported by the Queenstown mayor.If they are planning on having things good to go earlier, it would be nice to tell folks about it. You can't admit international students for July semester entry if you don't

If they are planning on having things good to go earlier, it would be nice to tell folks about it. You can't admit international students for July semester entry if you don't know until July that entry might be allowed!

I really hope Dave's right
