Coronavirus response

The department is committed to keeping the Norfolk Island community informed as the Australian Government works with state and territory governments on a nationally consistent approach to manage Australia's ongoing COVID-19 response.

Constant vigilance along with a commitment and continued capacity to surge response measures (if required) will remain important in the next phase of Australia's COVID-19 pandemic response transition.

Changes to COVID-19 restrictions

In line with changes to national protocols, people on Norfolk Island will no longer be required to isolate at home if testing positive to COVID-19, from 14 October 2022.

Reflecting this significant shift in the response to COVID-19, all existing public health directions for Norfolk Island have been revoked, through the following directions.

  • Stay home if you are sick, especially if you have COVID-19.
  • Get tested if you develop symptoms.
  • Practise good hygiene.
