Domestic flight announced as an exposure site

Due to the brief time the case spent at Melbourne Airport and the lack of current evidence that the case contracted the illness in Tasmania, the Melbourne domestic and international terminals are not considered exposure sites.

Passengers who were on Qantas flight QF1542 on Friday, July 2 are being contacted and asked to isolate, get tested and remain isolated until they get a negative test result.

Tasmania has not recorded a positive COVID-19 case since December 2020 and the new London case spent two weeks in Tasmania prior to their departure to the UK, making it unlikely that the case contracted COVID-19 in Tasmania.

Tasmanian public health services have taken a precautionary approach and listed public exposure sites linked to this case while they were in Tasmania.
