COVID-19 Alert for Victorian arrivals
NSW Health has been advised of new venues of concern related to recent confirmed cases in Victoria.
In response, NSW Health is calling on anyone in NSW who was at Melbourne Airport, Terminal 4 (Jetstar) from 4:45am – 2pm on 9 February to immediately isolate, get tested and remain in isolation for 14 days since you were there, regardless of the test result.
Out of an abundance of caution, NSW Health is asking anyone who is a household contact of someone who visited Terminal 4 on 9 February at the above time to stay in isolation until that person receives a negative result.
In addition, anyone who attended any terminal at Melbourne Airport on 7 and 8 February must immediately get tested and isolate until a negative result is received.
NSW Health is currently contacting approximately 7,000 people who have entered NSW from Victoria after attending these venues of concern, to ensure they are aware of the requirements.
A full list of venues is available at the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) website and is updated regularly. Please keep a careful watch on the web site.
If you have been to any of these locations at the times listed you are at risk of COVID‑19 so please follow the health advice provided.
People who have been to these venues are required to get tested immediately and isolate for up to 14 days. If you were at one of these venues, you can call your local NSW Public Health Unit on 1300 066 055 for further advice.
Since 4 February, all air and rail travellers arriving in NSW from Victoria have been required to fill out a passenger declaration form which includes confirmation of whether they have visited any venues of concern. This information is important for helping NSW contact travellers.
