    The CHO requires any person who has arrived or who will arrive in the Northern Territory who has been in the following Victorian Local Government Area or Town since 8 August 2021 to be tested for COVID-19.

    With reference to direction 42 of the Directions for Territory border restrictions (No.8) 2021, a person who is required to be tested 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).

    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 Public exposure sites in Victoria by the Victorian Department of Health, as updated by the Victorian 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 Victorian Department of Health from time to time are the public exposure periods:

    2. These directions apply to any person who has arrived in the Northern Territory since 7 June 2021 or who will arrive in the Northern Territory 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 Victoria since 7 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 7 June 2021 or who will arrive in the Northern Territory who has been in a ‘Tier 1’ public exposure site, 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 ‘Tier 1’ 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 has arrived in the Northern Territory since 7 June 2021 or who will arrive in the Northern Territory who has been in a ‘Tier 2’ public exposure site, 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 has arrived in the Northern Territory since 7 June 2021 or who will arrive in the Northern Territory who has been to a ‘Tier 3’ public exposure site 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. 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.
