Self quarantine

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Workers and others must self-quarantine for 14 days if they are feeling well and have:

  • travelled overseas in the past 14 days
  • arrived in Queensland from a COVID-19 hotspot
  • moved to Queensland from interstate
  • been in close contact with someone who already has COVID-19.

Workers who need to self-quarantine should notify their employer and stay away from work. They should seek immediate medical attention if they become ill during the quarantine period and call ahead of arriving and mention their travel or contact history.

Employers should make appropriate arrangements so that workers who need to self-quarantine stay away from work. Where possible, the worker should be provided with flexible work arrangements such as working from home.
