  • The Northern Territory Government has updated their website and the Greater Brisbane region is no longer declared as a COVID-19 hotspot.

    For full information regarding mandatory quarantine and COVID-19 testing please refer to the NTG update:

  • Effective immediately the Northern Territory has declared the Greater Brisbane region a hotspot.  This includes council areas of Brisbane, Logan, Ipswich, Moreton Bay and Redlands.

    This supports the rapid action taken by the Queensland Government to do everything they can to trace and trap in the Greater Brisbane region.

    Anyone arriving into the Territory as at 9.15 am Friday 8th January 2021 from these locations are required to enter mandatory quarantine. Mandatory quarantine will be at your own cost and in an approved Northern Territory facility.

    All staff and students that have entered the Northern Territory from 2nd January 2021 to 8th January are highly recommended to self-isolate and organise to be COVID-19 tested. 

    The Northern Territory Government webpage details further information related to the hotspot locations and requirements:

    Travelers must be aware of their responsibilities as per current NT Chief Health Officer COVID-19 Directions.

    Please don’t put the community at risk. Do the right thing.
