New public health order on COVID-19 hotspots

A new Public Health Order has been released in response to the recent surge of COVID-19 cases in Victoria. The order directs that an affected person must not travel to NSW unless:

· They are a NSW resident

· They are entering to obtain medical or other care

· To fulfil a legal obligation or give effect to a court order, or

· To provide an essential service as defined in the Order.

If an affected person enters NSW, they must self-isolate at their place of residence or another suitable place and remain there until 14 days have passed since the person was in a COVID-19 hotspot. NSW Health has prepared health advice for people who have been in a hotspot in Victoria in the past 14 days. People who breach the rules face an $11,000 fine and six months in prison.
