AFL Statement

Peter Gutwein,Premier

The Victorian Government have declared Melbourne Airport T3 a tier 2 exposure site between 8.00am and 9.00am yesterday (Saturday 26 June).

The North Melbourne charter flight containing players and officials travelling to yesterday’s AFL game left the terminal during this time, so they have been asked to isolate until they return a negative test.

This isolation does not apply to other people in their households who are able to go about their normal activities without isolating and being tested.

North Melbourne had strict protocols in place for yesterday’s game with players and officials flying in before the game and flying out after the game.

In response, Public Health has advised this morning that no one who attended the ground needs to isolate, or be tested.

This includes guests who attended functions at the ground yesterday which were attended by North Melbourne officials, with the risk being assessed as extremely low.

Tasmanians are reminded to maintain COVID safe behaviours, monitor yourself for symptoms, cover your coughs and sneezes, maintain good hand hygiene, and if unwell immediately self-isolate and arrange a test.
