Covid 19 and Victorian or NSW connections

Monday, 04 January 2021 by Julie Wicks

At the moment Victoria has not been declared a hotspot by Queensland Health. However, please see the following advice.

Important update for anyone who has travelled or is travelling to Victoria or New South Wales

While Queensland’s borders remain unchanged, anyone currently in Queensland who has been in Victoria on or since Monday 21 December 2020, should get tested immediately and quarantine at home or their accommodation until receiving a negative COVID-19 test result.

Queenslanders are urged to reconsider non-essential travel to New South Wales and Victoria as the situation in each state is concerning, and border arrangements may change. Queensland residents that are currently in New South Wales or Victoria should consider returning home.

After 1am AEST Monday 4 January 2021, Queensland hospitals, aged care facilities and disability accommodation facilities are closed to all visitors that have been in Victoria on or since Monday 21 December 2020 or left Victoria less than 14 days ago.

I am asking any member who has returned from Victoria within the last 14 days, or has had friends or family members visting from Victoria during that period, to please follow this advice. Please do not visit the club until you have a clear 14 days from the first date of contact.

As Greater Sydney and other areas are still listed as hotspots, it still applies that you need 14 days from the first day of contact before coming to the club if you have been in contact with anyone from those hotspots.

Many thanks for your co-operation.
