From Thursday 25 February, all flights arriving from Auckland into Victoria will be regarded as ‘red zone’ arrivals, and anyone arriving will be required to enter mandatory hotel quarantine for 14 days.

If you arrived in Melbourne from Auckland on 23 or 24 February, you must:

  1. Get tested immediately.
  2. Isolate until you receive a negative result. Do not attend work.
  3. Contact your manager.
  4. Contact the COVID-19 Employee Hotline on 959 45815 (7am to 7pm – seven days a week).
  5. Monitor for symptoms in the following two weeks post-exposure and repeat testing (and isolate until the result is known) if symptoms develop.
