Exposure site isolation time may be slashed for the fully vaccinated
Isolation rules for people who have been at a coronavirus exposure site may be overhauled, as more people are vaccinated.
One of Australia’s most prominent infectious diseases experts says there needs to be a risk-based approach to quarantine orders.
Right now, those who have been at a designated high-risk Tier 1 location – where a positive case has been – must get tested and isolate for 14 days, regardless of the initial test result.
Governments and public health teams are reportedly considering an overhaul of the regime, as the economy reopens.
Professor Peter Collignon told Neil Mitchell the rules should reflect the increasing vaccination rate.
