Mandatory self-quarantine for arrivals from COVID-19 hotspots
- 26 June 2020
Mandatory self-quarantine rules will apply for all interstate arrivals until 17 July, and for arrivals from hot spots from that date. Hot spots will be identified by State or Territory Governments, or by the Australian Health Protection Principal Committee, and listed on coronavirus.nt.gov.au
In addition to the information currently provided on the border arrival form, arrivals will be required to declare if they have been in, or travelled through, a hot spot within the last 28 days. Any person from interstate that lives in a hot spot area should be in lock down and therefore not travelling.
Making a false statement in a statutory declaration is an offence that carries significant penalties.
People who have been in hot spots will be monitored to ensure they comply with their self-quarantine requirements.
This is an evolving situation and important update for travellers, please visit coronavirus.nt.gov.au for more information.
