The CHO is directing any person who has arrived in the Northern Territory since 19 September 2021, or who will arrive in the NT and has been to a Queensland COVID-19 public exposure site at the dates and times specified to:

  • Any person defined as a ‘close contact’ by Queensland health authorities must immediately call the NT Health COVID Hotline on 1800 490 484 to get further instructions on testing and isolation requirements.
  • Any person identified as a ‘casual contact’ by Queensland health authorities must isolate, get a COVID-19 test and remain in self-quarantine until a negative is returned.
  • Any person who this direction applies to must check the Queensland Health COVID-19 case locations website at least once per day to make sure they comply if a place they have been to becomes a COVID-19 case location.

Queensland public exposure sites can be found at: https://www.qld.gov.au/health/conditions/health-alerts/coronavirus-covid-19/current-status/contact-tracing

  • The CHO has made the following directions:

    I, Hugh Crosbie Heggie, Chief Health Officer, under section 52 of the Public and Environmental Health Act 2011 (the Act), consider it necessary, appropriate or desirable to take action to alleviate the public health emergency in the Territory, declared by instrument entitled "Declaration of Public Health Emergency", dated 18 March 2020 (the public health emergency declaration), by making the following directions, effective immediately:

    1. With reference to Part 6 of CHO Directions No.8 of 2021 (my Directions for Territory Border Restrictions), the locations listed at the following link as current exposure venues in Queensland, as updated by the Queensland Department of Health from time to time, are COVID-19 public exposure sites. The relevant times and dates specified at the following link as updated by the Queensland Department of Health from time to time are the public exposure periods
      https://www.qld.gov.au/health/conditions/health-alerts/coronavirus-covid-19/current-status/contact-tracing
    2. These directions apply to any person who has arrived or who will arrive in the Northern Territory from 19 June 2021 who has been to a COVID-19 public exposure site during the public exposure periods.
    3. Any person who has arrived or who will arrive in the Northern Territory who has been in Queensland since 19 June 2021 must check the above website at least once per day and comply with these directions if a place they have been to becomes a COVID-19 public exposure site and they were at that place during the public exposure period.
    4. With reference to direction 37(a) and (b) of my Directions for Territory Border Restrictions, any person to whom these directions apply who has arrived in the Northern Territory since 19 June 2021 or who will arrive in the Northern Territory who is a ‘close contact’, as defined by the above website, must quarantine at a place approved by me until noon on the 14th day after the last day the person was in the COVID-19 public exposure site. The person must submit to testing while in quarantine.
    5. With reference to direction 41 of my Directions for Territory Border Restrictions, any person to whom these directions apply who is a ‘casual contact’, as defined by the above website, must travel directly to a suitable place of quarantine and remain in that place, except to submit to testing for COVID-19 (or in an emergency). Once tested, the person must remain in the suitable place of quarantine until they receive a negative test result.
    6. Any person to whom these directions apply who is a ‘low risk contact’, as defined by the above website, must monitor for symptoms and be tested for COVID-19 if symptoms arise. If tested, the person must remain in a suitable place of quarantine until they are notified of the results of the test.
    7. If a COVID-19 public exposure site that was a ‘close contact’ site, ceases to be a ‘close contact’ site, a person who is in quarantine by reason only of that area formerly being a ‘close contact’ site is not required to remain in quarantine, provided they have been tested for COVID-19 and received a negative result.
    8. If a COVID-19 public exposure site that was a ‘casual contact’ or ‘low risk contact’ site becomes a ‘close contact’ site, a person who has been to the site must travel directly to a suitable place of quarantine and remain in that place, except to submit to testing for COVID-19 (or in an emergency). Once tested, the person must remain in the suitable place of quarantine until noon on the 14th day after the last day the person was in the ‘close contact’ site, regardless of whether the result of the test is negative.
    9. To avoid doubt, a person to whom these directions apply is considered a person who is required to quarantine under my Directions for Territory Border Restrictions (No.8), and all quarantine requirements under my Directions for Territory Border Restrictions apply.
