Authorities have run out of options, for dealing with the uncooperative women at the centre of Northland's ongoing Covid lockdown.
Officials believe they have all the information they are going to get out of the pair.
That isn't much, with the two Covid-positive women refusing to confirm the locations of interest they visited while travelling throughout the region.
Police Association President Chris Cahill told Mike Hosking there isn't much anyone can do.
"The reality with these people is, they don't have to talk to Police, they have a right to silence and that's incredibly frustrating with the seriousness of what they've done."
