    The Prime Minister says she's open to suggestions about tweaking the Covid leave support scheme

    The Prime Minister says she's open to suggestions about tweaking the Covid leave support scheme


    But Jacinda Ardern says she hasn't had sustained feedback from employers there are issues with the way it's working.

    Ardern says they rolled out the system because there should not be any reason for Kiwis not to stay home if required.

    She says it's unusual for the Government to step in with what is effectively sick pay - and it was always meant to be a subsidy - not full entitlement.
