Public health alert- Advice for people who have been in Victoria

NSW Health is extending its stay-at-home restrictions for people in NSW who have been in Victoria since 4pm on Thursday 27 May for a further seven days. These measures are in line with Victoria’s restrictions and will be reviewed by NSW Health on 10 June.

Anyone in NSW who has been in Victoria, including regional Victoria, after 4pm on Thursday 27 May must continue to follow stay-at-home directions for 14 days, or until the order is lifted.

For NSW residents living along the Victorian border, the stay-at-home requirement will only apply to people who have been outside the defined border region in Victoria since 4pm on Thursday 27 May.

Anyone who has attended a close-contact venue in Victoria must get tested and self-isolate for 14 days since they were at the venue, regardless of their test result.

Anyone who has attended a casual-contact venue in Victoria must get tested and self-isolate until they receive a negative result. They then must continue to follow the stay-at-home order if they have arrived in NSW since 4pm on Thursday 27 May.

NSW Health urges people who have been in Victoria in the past 14 days to regularly check the Victoria Department of Health and Human Services website for recently added venues of concern linked to the latest cases.

If you attended any of the venues identified at the times listed, please contact NSW Health immediately on 1800 943 553.

NSW Health reminds people to continue to present for testing with even the mildest of symptoms. There are more than 300 COVID-19 testing locations across NSW, many of which are open seven days a week. To find your nearest testing clinic, visit COVID-19 clinics, or contact your GP.

NSW Health also urges everyone to take practical measures to stay COVID-safe, including practising good hand hygiene and always using QR codes to check in to and out of venues.

Get vaccinated

People aged 50 and over are encouraged to book their AstraZeneca vaccination through their GP in the first instance, but if they are unable to obtain the vaccine from their GP, appointments can also be booked in NSW Health clinics

Those aged 40-49 can now also register their interest in receiving the Pfizer vaccine. They will be contacted and invited to make a booking when there is availability at clinics.
