Vaccination and check in

Quarantine and Isolation

  • Close contacts do not have to quarantine if they wear a face mask indoors and avoid sensitive settings.
  • They will need to do at least five negative rapid tests over the seven days that would once have been the self-quarantine period. If you are currently a household contact, you must continue to self-quarantine. You will be able to leave quarantine at 11:59pm 22 April if you meet the above conditions.
  • People are exempt from testing or quarantine for 12 weeks if they’ve had COVID-19.
  • You must still isolate for seven days following a COVID-19 diagnosis.

Workplace contacts

  • Work from home if you're a close contact exempt from quarantine.

Events
