Border screening

NSW Health is taking a precautionary approach to the prevention of COVID-19, assisting the Australian Government in assessing passengers who arrive at Sydney Airport who have been in China in the previous 14 days and assessing passengers arriving on some cruise ships into Sydney from international ports.

Sydney International Airport

Since Sunday 2 February, a total of 20,835 people have been assessed at Sydney International Airport. A total of 67 were sent for testing. This includes testing conducted as at 1pm today when 142 arrivals from mainland China were assessed at Sydney International Airport. No one was sent for testing.

Following a risk assessment, three cruise ships arriving in Sydney today were not required to be met by the health assessment team. There are no cruise ships scheduled to arrive tomorrow.
