COVID-safe travel

You should not travel if you are unwell.

If you develop COVID-19 symptoms while away or after returning to the ACT, get tested immediately.

While travelling, use the ABCs of protecting yourself, your family and our community from COVID-19.

Avoid COVID-affected areas—check the COVID website of the state or territory you are travelling to. If you are welcoming relatives or visitors from interstate, please ask them not to come if they are travelling from an area with a recent case or are feeling unwell.

Behave in a COVID-safe way—be vigilant with hand and respiratory hygiene, maintain physical distancing from other groups, and stay home if feeling unwell.

Check back when you’re home—monitor the COVID website of the state or territory you visited to see if they had any cases, for two weeks after your return. Follow the website’s advice about testing and self-isolation. If you feel unwell with COVID symptoms while away or when you return, please get tested immediately and self-isolate until you get the result.

More travel advice is available on the Australian Department of Health website.
