Victoria travel warning: “Get home as soon as possible”

Further advice is being sought from public health officials following seven new positive cases of COVID-19 in Victoria today.

“There are also a growing number of locations of interest that are of concern, including a sports stadium on Saturday and several pubs,” said COVID-19 Response Minister, Chris Hipkins.

“Public health officials are currently reviewing the situation in Victoria and will provide advice to me in due course.

“In the meantime I want to encourage anyone with concerns about the potential of a pause to Quarantine Free Travel, to organise to get home as soon as possible.

“You will still need a negative pre-departure test within 72 hours of departure, to complete a health declaration confirming you have not been at a location of interest and the Nau Mai Rā travel declaration.

“I will provide an update once I receive further information from public health officials.”
