NSW Health has introduced new rules for anyone entering the state that has been in Melbourne.

May 11, 2021

Anyone arriving in NSW from Melbourne will have to complete a declaration form confirming they have not attended any venues of concern linked to a new COVID-19 case.
The new rule comes into effect from 6am on Wednesday and applies to anyone who has been in greater Melbourne in the previous 14 days.
People who have arrived in NSW from Melbourne since May 6 are also required to check the list of venues and contact NSW Health if they have attended any of them.
These declaration forms provide critical information to enable NSW Health to contact travellers if required and is for all travellers who intend to enter NSW by air, road and rail having been in greater Melbourne in the previous 14 days, NSW Health said.
This form includes contact details and confirmation of whether people have been to any venues of concern. Declaration forms must be completed within the 24-hour period prior to entering NSW, or on entry to NSW.

It comes as Victorian health authorities investigate a new case of COVID-19 in the community after a recently returned traveller tested positive to the virus in Melbourne on Tuesday morning.
He had completed his hotel quarantine in South Australia after returning to the country on April 19 from India, via the Maldives and Singapore.
The man, aged in his 30s, tested negative to coronavirus on days one, five, nine and 13 of his stay.
