COVID-19 (coronavirus) is having a huge impact on travellers. Here are some of the key things to know.

MEDIA RELEASE

Monday 14 January 2021 - Update regarding travel to Norfolk Island from the Greater Sydney Area

At today’s meeting the EMT agreed to ease the requirement for local isolation associated with travellers from NSW. Travellers from the Central Coast, Wollongong and some parts of Sydney will no longer be required to undertake self-isolation on the island. The Northern Beaches LGA is also no longer regarded as a hot spot. However, travellers from the following areas of Greater Sydney are still required to undertake self-isolation on arrival.

City of Blacktown

City of Canada Bay

City of Canterbury-Bankstown

City of Fairfield

City of Parramatta

Cumberland Council

Inner West Council

Municipality of Burwood

Municipality of Strathfield

The areas covered by this requirement can be found at:- COVID19 Hotspots Declared by NT CHO – Google My Maps. Travellers from NSW currently undertaking self-isolation on the island that are not from the areas in which restrictions still apply have the remainder of their self-isolation requirement lifted.

The easing of self-isolation requirement of travellers is consistent with the continuing low level of community transmission in both NSW and Queensland. Travellers from the unrestricted areas present a low risk to the community and the easing is consistent with the approach being followed by some other jurisdictions.
