The National newspaper reported the pandemic response director Dr Daoni Esorom saying that expatriates would pay the $28 cost for the monitors.
 
Esorom said the exercise was approved by the response controller David Manning to be tested for a month.
 
"The controller approved the engagement of TrackCo to track them while in quarantine to ensure they adhere to the guidelines," Dr Esorom said.
 
He said PNG citizens and residents were exempt for now. PNG has recorded seven Covid-19 related deaths and nearly 600 confirmed cases of the coronavirus so far.
