Stay-at-home requirements for people in NSW who have been in Western Australia, the Northern Territory, and certain local government areas in Queensland have now been lifted.

NSW Health has revoked the stay-at-home orders for returned interstate travellers in line with the public health advice in those states. However, anyone entering NSW who has been in Western Australia, Northern Territory, Queensland and Victoria in the previous 14 days must still complete a declaration form confirming they have not been to any of the exposure venues. Restrictions still apply if people have been to an exposure venue.

Queensland has lifted stay-at-home orders for all regions except for Brisbane City and Moreton Bay. As a consequence, stay at home orders still apply to people who have been in Brisbane City or Moreton Bay since 30 June. 

Western Australia and the Northern Territory have completely lifted their stay-at-home orders and as a consequence, the stay-at-home orders no longer apply to people just because they have been to Western Australia or the Northern Territory.

NSW Health continues to urge people who have been interstate in the past 14 days to regularly check the relevant state websites for recently added venues of concern linked to the latest cases.

If you attended any of the venues identified at the times listed, please contact NSW Health immediately on 1800 943 553.

Stay-at-home orders are still in effect across all of the Greater Sydney region, including the Blue Mountains, Central Coast, Wollongong and Shellharbour.

Everyone in Greater Sydney must stay at home, other than for an essential reason such as:

  • shopping for food or other essential goods and services;
  • compassionate needs or medical care, including being vaccinated for COVID-19 (unless you have been identified as a close contact);
  • exercise outdoors in groups of 10 or fewer;
  • essential work or education, where you cannot work or study from home. 

People who have been in the Greater Sydney region (including the Blue Mountains, Central Coast, Wollongong and Shellharbour) on or after Monday 21 June must also follow the stay-at-home orders for a period of 14 days after leaving Greater Sydney.

NSW Health reminds people to continue to present for testing with even the mildest of symptoms. There are more than 300 COVID-19 testing locations across NSW, many of which are open seven days a week. To find your nearest testing clinic, visit the NSW Government testing clinics webpage or contact your GP.

NSW Health also urges everyone to take practical measures to stay COVID-safe, including practising good hand hygiene and always using QR codes to check in to and out of venues.
