Follow the ABCs of COVID-safe travel:
Avoid COVID-affected areas - check the COVID website of the state or territory you are travelling to. If you are welcoming relatives or visitors from interstate, please ask them not to come if they are travelling from an area with a recent case or are feeling unwell.
Check back when you’re home - monitor the COVID website of the state or territory you visited to see if they had any cases, for two weeks after your return. Follow the website’s advice about testing and self-isolation. If you feel unwell with COVID symptoms while away or when you return, please get tested immediately and self-isolate until you get the result.
