No new cases for Victoria, but Brisbane visitors must isolate

Travellers from Brisbane and Moreton Bay, north of the Queensland capital, will also need to get a coronavirus test within 72 hours and stay isolated until they receive a negative result.

Anyone who has been to one of the public exposure sites in Queensland will need to contact Victoria’s Department of Health.

Anyone wishing to travel from Brisbane and Moreton Bay now requires an “orange zone” Victorians travel permit, cannot enter if they have any COVID-19 symptoms and will need to isolate and get tested within 72 hours of entering Victoria.

The Department of Health is now scrambling to contact all those who recently entered Victoria from the Brisbane area.

“Using data from travel permits, the Victorian Department of Health will be contacting anyone who has entered Victoria from the City of Brisbane and Moreton Bay Region since 12 March to advise them of their obligations,” the health department said on Twitter late on Friday.
