Significant changes at 90% fully vaccinated.
As of 11.59pm, Thursday 18 November 2021, significant changes to COVID-19 case management and isolation requirements will come into effect. This is as a result of 90% of Victorians older than 12 being fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
This will change the way that confirmed COVID-19 cases and their close contacts will need to isolate.
Confirmed Case: If you return a positive PCR test, you must quarantine away from others for 10 days from the date the first positive test was taken.
Household Contacts: If you are a household contact of a confirmed COVID-19 case and you are fully vaccinated, you must quarantine away from others for 7 days from the date the first positive test was taken in the first household case. If you are not fully vaccinated, you will need to quarantine for 14 days from the date the first positive test was taken in the first household case.
Exposed Person: If you have come into contact with a confirmed COVID-19 case in a social setting, you DO NOT need to quarantine. You must get a PCR test and isolate until you have received a negative result.
Over the coming days, we will be updating all content on the website to reflect these changes. If you want to read the full announcements on the changes, click here.
