25 May 2021 Media Release

The Chief Health Officer has revoked all existing directions in relation to Victoria and has issued updated testing and quarantine directions.

The re-issuing of Chief Health Officer Directions for Victoria is off the back of an emerging cluster of nine cases, and further investigations from Victorian health authorities as to the origin of cases.

The Victorian Department of Health has a three tier, risk-based system for exposure sites.

In line with this tier system, Chief Health Officer has now directed:  

  • Tier 1: Anyone who has arrived, or intends to arrive, into the Northern Territory and has visited any Tier 1 public exposure site(s) at the prescribed dates and times, must immediately get tested and undertake 14 days of quarantine in their home, or at a suitable place. They must remain in quarantine (unless to get tested) until noon of the 14th day after they were in a Tier 1 public exposure site, regardless of whether they return a negative COVID-19 test.
  • Tier 2: Anyone who has arrived, or intends to arrive, into the Northern Territory and has visited any Tier 2 public exposure site(s) at the prescribed dates and times, must immediately self-isolate, get a test and remain in self-quarantine until a negative is returned.
  • Tier 3: Anyone who has arrived, or intends to arrive, into the Northern Territory and has visited any Tier 3 public exposure site(s) at the prescribed dates and times, must monitor their symptoms and if any symptoms develop, immediately self-isolate, get a test and remain in self-quarantine until a negative is returned.

Additionally, anyone who has arrived into the Northern Territory from Greater Melbourne since 6 May 2021 and is showing any symptoms of COVID-19 must self-isolate, get a test within 72 hours, and remain in self-quarantine until a negative test is returned.
