The following applies from 6pm tonight:

  • Get tested for COVID-19 if symptoms develop.
  • You will be contacted by WA Police using the G2G Pass system with the latest advice about exposure locations in Victoria.

Arrivals from 6pm, 25 May onwards

  • Get tested for COVID-19 and self-quarantine until a negative result is returned.
  • You must wear a mask when in transit to your premises or to get a COVID-19 test.
  • You cannot use public transport (buses and trains) until you have returned a negative test result.

Arrivals who have visited Victorian exposure sites during relevant times

  • Get tested immediately for COVID-19 and self-quarantine for 14 days from date of exposure.
  • You must also get a COVID-19 on day two and day 11 of your 14-day self-quarantine. Masks must be worn when leaving your self-quarantine premises to present for testing.
  • This 14-day requirement applies irrespective of whether the exposure site is considered Tier 1 or Tier 2 by Victoria Health.

Recently returned travellers from Victoria should continue to monitor the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services coronavirus website (external link) for exposure locations.

Anyone who is unwell or experiencing symptoms should get tested for COVID-19 and self-quarantine until they return a negative test result.
