Director of Public Health declares NSW and VIC as high risk

Earlier today, Victorian authorities announced that Melbourne’s lockdown will be extended for another seven days until 11.59pm Thursday 10 June and that some restrictions will be lifted including those applied to regional Victoria.

The details of the extent of the restrictions will be finalised overnight.

However, based on Public Health advice it is apparent that travel will be restricted to and from at least the greater Melbourne area for another seven days.

Contact tracing relating to the COVID-19 outbreak in Victoria has identified several premises in Southern New South Wales visited by a confirmed case.

The Tasmanian Director of Public Health has declared these premises as high risk.

All recent arrivals in Tasmania who have been in NSW on or after 23 May are being contacted to advise them of these high-risk premises.

A list of premises declared as high-risk is available at www.coronavirus.tas.gov.au/travelalert. People who have recently been in NSW should continue to monitor this list to check if they have been at any of these premises. This list will be reviewed and updated regularly.

If anyone currently in Tasmania has been at any of these high-risk premises at the specified dates and times, they should immediately self-isolate and contact the Public Health Hotline on 1800 671 738 to organise testing.

Anyone intending to travel to Tasmania who has been to any of these locations will not be permitted to enter the State unless approved as an essential traveller.

If you have any cold or flu symptoms, even mild, contact the Public Health Hotline on 1800 671 738 to arrange a test.
