COVID-19 Outbreak in NSW - Notice for Victorians


07 May 2021

Due to a current outbreak of COVID in NSW, the NSW Government has recently published a new list of exposure sites. The list is continuing to be updated to include sites with confirmed cases. Locations may be removed after 14 days since the last known date a confirmed case attended the location.

Following this announcement, the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services(DHHS) has declared all sites listed in NSW associated with the exposures as TIER 1 sites. Instructions for anyone in Victoria who has been to a TIER 1 site are to -

immediately self-isolate until 14 days after you were last there
get tested even if you have no symptoms
watch for COVID-19 symptoms and get re-tested should any symptoms recur
stay in isolation for 14 days even if you get a negative test, as it can take 14 days before you may show symptoms or test positive
contact DHHS on 1300 651 160

If this applies to any students on a Box Institute campus, please contact your Course Coordinator immediately.

This is a timely reminder as we’re living with COVID and need to continue to monitor the situation and take appropriate action. Please continue to adhere to COVIDSafety behaviours.
