Flights to and from New South Wales have now resumed. However, anyone who was at a location of interest in Sydney at the times specified must follow NSW health advice regarding isolation and testing. In addition, they must not travel to New Zealand within 14 days from when they were at the location.

Travellers who have arrived in New Zealand and have been at a location of interest during the exposure time must immediately self-isolate, and call Healthline for advice on when they should be tested.

As restrictions remain in place around Greater Sydney, travellers to this area are advised to be careful when travelling and safeguard themselves, by wearing a facemask and maintaining physical distance wherever they go.

Information about locations of interest visited by the cases is available on the New South Wales health website.
