Latest COVID settings
Household and close contacts
Household and close contacts do not need to self-isolate if they do not have any symptoms, but must follow NSW Health household and close contact guidelines.
People who test positive to COVID-19 must continue to self-isolate for 7 days from the date of their positive test and follow the testing positive to COVID-19 and managing COVID-19 safely at home advice.
Unvaccinated international arrivals
Unvaccinated international arrivals are no longer required to undertake hotel quarantine. These passengers now follow the same guidelines as fully vaccinated international arrivals and take a rapid antigen test within 24 hours of arrival.
Self-isolate when you get a test, have COVID-19, arrive from overseas, are a household contact with symptoms, or at high risk of getting COVID-19.
If you live with someone who has COVID-19 or you are a close contact, follow these guidelines to help protect your loved ones and your community.
