Updated advice on coronavirus from Victorian Government

The Victorian Government Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) is advising all people who have been in mainland China (excluding Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan) on or after 1 February 2020, or in Hubei Province, China at any time, to stay at home (self-isolate) and avoid public settings for 14 days after landing in Australia.

Anyone who has been in close contact with a confirmed case of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) should also stay at home and avoid public settings until 14 days after their last contact.
