COVID19 Traffic Light system gone

Published 12 Sep 2022

The Covid-19 Protection Framework, also known as the traffic light system, will end at 11.59pm tonight (12th Sept 2022).

Masks will no longer be required by law, except in healthcare and aged-care facilities. Workplace policies are still valid but may wish to be reviewed.

House hold contacts of Covid-19 cases no longer need to isolate. Only positive testing people still need to isolate for seven days. House hold contacts need to RAT test daily.

All Government vaccine mandates will end on September 26 2022, but employers can continue their own policies if they see fit.
