Locations visited by confirmed COVID-19 cases

  • The information provided on this page should not replace advice given directly to an individual by the Department of Health’s contact tracing team.
  • The Department of Health is contacting all confirmed cases to identify and inform close contacts.
  • As part of the contact tracing process, contact tracers speak to positive cases and determine where they have been in the days they are possibly infectious.
  • When close and casual contacts in a location can be comprehensively traced such as a workplace, family’s house, or friend’s house there is no need to publicly release the location, as all contacts are tracked and contacted as a priority.
  • However, when the positive case has visited publicly accessible locations and close and casual contacts are not as readily identifiable, the location is released to assist with the public health response.
  • Find out where to get tested.
