NSW orders anybody who’s been in Melbourne to self-isolate immediately
Anybody who has travelled to NSW from Melbourne since July 8 must immediately enter self-isolation.
It’s the latest measure being introduced by the NSW government to stop the spread of the coronavirus.
NSW Health amended its isolation order late last night so that it will not be applied retrospectively.
It was initially understood that anyone in NSW who had visited Greater Melbourne since June 24 was required to self-isolate for two weeks. This will now only apply to arrivals after July 7.
It’s claimed those travellers will only be allowed out of isolation once they are tested for COVID-19 and return a negative result, or when their two-week period ends.
