Immediate quarantine alert for Sydney to Melbourne flight passengers

The Victorian health department issued a late-night exposure site warning to all passengers and crew on a Virgin airways flight that travelled from Sydney to Melbourne to immediately self-isolate at home and contact the department for further information.

The warning affects all passengers and crew who travelled on flight VA 838, which left Sydney at midday and arrived in Melbourne at 1.25pm on Saturday.

The department said that two international travellers are now in mandatory quarantine in Victoria, after arriving in Sydney on Saturday and boarding the domestic flight to Melbourne without quarantining in NSW.

The department did not, however, indicate whether the two travellers had tested positive to coronavirus or provide details about how the travellers had managed to avoid the strict quarantine requirements in place in NSW.
