Agreed. My family is looking forward to some more clarity here. The policy should allow normally resident children back in and extend to children of people who have CI work visas (there are a few teachers and doctors who need to come in for work and need to bring their kids, not many). These children will be vaccinated in the Cook Islands as soon as they are allowed to be, will be tested prior to flying and are unlikely to get gravely ill. So they actually pose very little risk to the Country.
