Anyone travelling to the Northern Territory, who has been to the hotspot locations in the NSW Central Coast region after 5pm on July 21 and arrives in the Northern Territory will be required to undertake 14 days of mandatory supervised quarantine at the Alice Springs or Howard Springs quarantine facilities.
Anyone who has left the Central West region of NSW before 5pm on July 21 is able to enter into the Northern Territory without having to undertake quarantine.
It comes after a COVID-19 outbreak in New South Wales caused by a delivery driver who travelled from south-west Sydney to the Central West region tested positive to COVID-19.
Anyone already in the Northern Territory who has been to a COVID-19 public exposure site in New South Wales must follow the quarantine and testing directions already in place and listed on the NT COVID-19 website at https://coronavirus.nt.gov.au/travel/quarantine/hotspots-covid-19
