Brisbane arrivals in Northern Territory, Tasmania quarantine allowed to leave


Travellers from Greater Brisbane who went into quarantine in the Top End are leaving isolation while only some who landed in Tasmania are free to go.

Tasmania followed suit, but is only allowing those who entered the state prior to 9am on Friday to leave isolation.

Northern Territory Chief Minister Michael Gunner said the people were able to exit quarantine in Howard Springs and Alice Springs because there was no community transmission of coronavirus recorded during Brisbane’s three-day lockdown.

“This is the key reason we can remove the hotspot status,” he told reporters on Monday afternoon.

“But the precautions that Queenslanders will be taking for the next 10 days with masks also gives us extra confidence.

“We’ve always been clear that we do not hesitate to add new hot spots … when the evidence shows us that the risk is removed, we act.”
