As part of AIBT’s commitment to our student’s and staff’s health and safety, we are monitoring the COVID-19 situation very closely and following all the relevant advice from government agencies and global organisations.

QLD

As of 1:00am on Friday, 22 January 2021, face masks are no longer mandatory at all times when you leave home. The Greater Brisbane region is now subject to the same restrictions as the rest of the state. For more information visit: Restrictions in Queensland
 

NSW

A number of areas have been identified as areas with increased testing. Confirmed COVID-19 cases are associated with a number of locations and have been classified by NSW Health for action. Refer to Latest COVID-19 case locations and alerts in NSW.

It is important for the ongoing control of COVID-19 in NSW that anyone in the state who has any COVID-19 symptoms, no matter how mild, continues to get tested immediately and self-isolates until a negative test result is received.

TAS

The Greater Brisbane Local Government Areas (LGA’s) of Brisbane, Moreton Bay, Ipswich, Redland and Logan are no longer classified as medium-risk areas.

Travellers who have spent time in these LGA’s in the 14 days prior to their arrival in Tasmania will not be required to quarantine on arrival after this time.

All travellers are asked to continue to check the contact tracing alerts every day in case further contact tracing locations are identified. If you were at any of these identified premises, please contact the Public Health Hotline 1800 671 738 to arrange a test.

New measures for return to Australia

09 JAN 2021

Following today’s decision by National Cabinet and announcement from the Prime Minister, if you are travelling to Australia you must provide evidence of a negative COVID-19 test prior to boarding your flight at the departure point.

Anyone who has a negative test result and enters Australia, must still complete mandatory 14-day quarantine at designated facilities in your port of arrival.

Masks are now mandatory for all international and domestic flights, including within airports. Read the Australian Health Protection Principal Committee (AHPPC) statement on safe air travel – enhancing end-to-end mitigations – international.

International arrival caps will be reduced until 15 February 2021. This could affect your flight into Australia. If you’re scheduled to fly home to Australia in the coming weeks, confirm your itinerary and travel plans with your airline or travel agent.

Further details, including the start date for these measures will be announced shortly. These details will be available on  Australia.gov.au and the Department of Health.

Travellers to Australia should contact their airline regarding any current requirements relating to COVID-19 testing.
