Please attribute to a Police spokesperson:
Police in full PPE have arrested a man who was located at an Ōtāhuhu address after escaping a quarantine facility earlier today, and have taken him into custody.
The man has been charged under the Health Order with failing to comply with order (Covid-19) and he has appeared in the Auckland District Court via a contactless video link this afternoon.
A judge has bailed him to return to a managed quarantine facility.
The man’s family have been extremely cooperative with Police and we thank them for this.
