CIQ contains a link to new Sydney FAQ with information about testing and quarantines by New South Wales including:

  • Current testing involves NSW using a single swab for both nostrils and mouth (to save swabs)
  • If there is a positive result, NSW will conduct contact tracing
  • NSW has not yet determined if close contacts can leave before quarantine on Purple Tail aircraft

A positive test results in crewmember being transported to “NSW Special Health Accommodation” or a hospital if necessary
