COVID-19 ADVICE - Thursday 11 June 2021

The Chief Health Officer (CHO) has declared quarantine and testing directions for people who have been to a COVID-19 case location in Queensland, effective immediately – please see attached media release.

The CHO is directing any person who has arrived in the Northern Territory since 5 June 2021, or who will arrive in the Northern Territory and has been to a Queensland COVID-19 public exposure site at the dates and times to do as follows:

  • Any person defined as a ‘close contact’ by Queensland health authorities 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 Queensland COVID-19 case location, regardless of whether they return a negative COVID-19 test.
  • Any person identified as a ‘casual contact’ by Queensland health authorities must isolate, get a COVID-19 test and remain in self-quarantine until a negative test is returned.
  • Any person who this Direction applies to must check the Queensland Health COVID-19 case locations website at least once per day to make sure they comply if a place they have been to becomes a COVID-19 case location.

CHO quarantine and testing directions for people who have been to a COVID-19 public exposure site in New South Wales remain in place.

If this advice is applicable to any student or family member of a student, please follow the advice issued by the NT Chief Health Officer, and ensure that the student or family member does not attend school until they have completed the relevant testing requirements and period of isolation/quarantine.

All of our educators have been sent this advice and we will support schools to ensure that teachers are following the latest health advice.
