Melbourne travellers

The original cohort of travellers from Melbourne, including air crew is now 5,160. Of those:

  • 3,184 have returned a negative test result,
  • 1,774 require no further action as they have returned to Australia or have reached the 14-day post exposure date,
  • 202 are exempt from testing because they are under the age of 12.

As there are no further actions required, this is the final report on this cohort.
