NSW Health urges people to continue to get tested if they are suffering even the mildest of symptoms and have already undergone a COVID-19 test.

To keep our community safe, follow NSW Health advice. If you are directed to get tested for COVID-19 or self-isolate at any time, you must follow the rules whether or not the venue or exposure setting is listed on the NSW Health website.

Please check the NSW Government website regularly and follow the relevant health advice if you have attended a venue of concern or travelled on a route of concern.

Anyone travelling to NSW after 12.01am today (Wednesday 30 June) who has been in the Northern Territory, Queensland, or Western Australia, in the previous 14 days must complete a declaration form. Declaration requirements are still also in place for people who have been in Victoria in the previous 14 days.

The declaration form is available on the Service NSW website, and can be completed in the 24-hour period before entering NSW or on arrival. The information gathered from travel declarations is vital to allow NSW Health to contact travellers if necessary.

NSW Health advises against non-essential travel to lockdown areas in other states and territories at this time. Do not travel to NSW if you have attended a venue of concern as close contacts must isolate immediately, get tested and remain in isolation for 14 days, and contact the relevant health authorities in their state or territory.

NSW Health urges people who have recently travelled from the Northern Territory, Queensland, Western Australia and Victoria to regularly check the local health websites to see if they have visited any of the venues of concern, and if so, immediately follow the relevant public health advice.

If you are in NSW and have attended any of the venues identified by the local public health authorities at the times and dates listed, please contact NSW Health immediately on 1800 943 553.
