Known interstate and international transport

On 7 October 2020, a woman in her 30s, who travelled from Townsville to Melbourne by air and has tested positive to COVID-19, transited through Canberra Airport for a short period.

The individual, who tested positive three days after arriving in Melbourne, was asymptomatic during her stopover at Canberra Airport between 8.30am and 10.00am and wore a mask on all flights and in the airport.

ACT Health is contacting passengers and crew on flight QF1543 from Brisbane to Canberra, who may have been in close contact with this particular passenger.

As a precaution, anybody who was in the Canberra airport at Gate 13 or 14 between 8.30am and 10.00am should watch for symptoms and if symptoms develop, isolate and get tested for COVID-19.

All previously known flights that had passengers with COVID are no longer a risk for transmission.

Any future flights will be added to this page.

For flights linked to cases of COVID-19 that arrived in NSW, please visit the NSW Department of Health website.
