17 July 2021

Anyone travelling to NSW who has been in Victoria after 12.01am on Saturday 17 July will be required to follow the stay-at-home rules.

The previous exemption for NSW border region residents remains in place. NSW border residents do not have to follow the stay-at-home rules if the only place they have been in Victoria is in the border region.

Declaration requirements are still in place for people who have been in Victoria, Western Australia, Queensland and the Northern Territory in the previous 14 days, with the exception of those living and travelling in the NSW/Victoria border region.

Interstate travellers who have been to a close-contact venue must not enter NSW unless they are a NSW resident, or are transiting to the ACT. If they are in NSW, they must self-isolate until it has been 14 days since they were last at the close-contact venue.

Interstate travellers who have been to a casual-contact venue must not enter NSW unless they are a NSW resident (or transiting to the ACT) or they have had a negative COVID-19 result after being at the venue.

If they are in NSW, they must self-isolate until it has been 14 days since they were last at the casual-contact venue, or until they receive a negative COVID-19 test result.

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 urges people who have recently travelled from Victoria, the Northern Territory, Queensland, and Western Australia 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.

NSW Health reminds people to continue to present for testing with even the mildest of symptoms. There are more than 400 COVID-19 testing locations across NSW, many of which are open seven days a week. To find your nearest testing clinic, visit COVID-19 testing clinics, or contact your GP.
