COVID-19: GP Alert (26 February 2021)

February 26, 2021

Update your triage questions - Testing for returned travelers from New Zealand

From 6:00pm AEST 24 February 2021, updates to the Quarantine for International Arrivals Direction (No. 6) and Quarantine and COVID-19 Testing for International Air Crew (No.7) came into effect.

The changes to these directions mean that:

  • New Zealand has been removed as a Safe Travel Zone Country
  • All travellers from New Zealand will need to complete quarantine.

It is recommended that all travellers who have been in New Zealand since 21 February 2021, should come forward, get tested and isolate until they receive a negative result. This applies to anyone who has entered from 6 February who has not already had a test after entering Queensland.

More information about Queensland’s Public Health Directions can be found on the Queensland Health website.
