Cases 1-4 are in a travel bubble together. As is our standard protocol, any cases detected after day 3 are investigated further.


The original cohort of travellers from Melbourne now sits at 4,789.

Of those 4,789 travellers:

  • 1,626 require no further action as they have returned to Australia or have reached the 14-day post exposure date
  • 2,933 have returned a negative test result
  • 203 are exempt from testing because they are under the age of 12
  • 27 have no test result as yet.

Contact tracers have emailed and twice called each of these 27 travellers and will be recording test results as and when they are logged. If a negative test result is logged, they are removed from this list and added to the number of people who have already returned a negative test result.

Of 371 crew members, we know that:

  • 239 have returned a negative test result; and
  • 132 crew members have either no result as yet or require no further action
