A back-up plan will be needed for Kiwis wanting to get away this Waitangi weekend.
The Ministry of Health says New Zealanders going away this weekend should have plans in place in case individuals get COVID symptoms, test positive or are identified as a close contact and need to self isolate where they are.
This may include extra costs involved to pay for accommodation to isolate at and changing your travel plans.
The Ministry said alternative accommodation options are limited.
"There are limited alternative accommodation options for those who are unable to safely isolate in their own homes or if they have travelled elsewhere, and as case numbers rise, the accommodation will be focused on those with high needs," the Ministry of Health wrote on their website.
They said travel can contribute to the spread of COVID-19 and anyone with COVID symptoms should not travel.
"It is also important people going on holiday this weekend take measures to reduce the risk of both catching and spreading the virus."
The most common early symptoms of the Omicron variant are a running nose and sore or scratchy throat.
Travellers are urged to be diligent with scanning in using the NZ COVID Tracer app.
There were 147 new community cases in New Zealand of any variant reported on Thursday.
