Covid Update: Regional Victoria declared hotspot 24 September

NT Government

As a result, all of the state of Victoria is a declared hotspot. This CHO direction follows a steady increase in cases spreading across Regional Victoria, in addition to unexpected wastewater testing.

Strict border controls are in place for all people travelling to the NT from a declared hotspot or public exposure site. The border controls prohibit entry into the NT except for returning residents, or those who have obtained prior approval to enter.

People from Victoria with an approved exemption to travel to the NT and who arrive after 5.00pm today, will be required to undertake 14 days of mandatory supervised quarantine at the Alice Springs or Howard Springs quarantine facilities.

It is very important that if you have symptoms, you get tested for COVID-19. Book your COVID-19 test online at here or contact the COVID-19 Hotline on 1800 490 484.
