Novel Coronavirus

03 February 2020

The Department of Health and Human Services is working closely with the Victorian health sector, Commonwealth and international agencies to respond appropriately to the outbreak of a novel coronavirus.

This situation is changing frequently. Please visit the DHHS website for updates.

The advice from the Department of Health and Human Services is that unless you have been in mainland China in the past 14 days, you should continue to go about your daily lives and travel as normal. This includes continuing to use public transport, cars, taxis, hire cars and ridesharing.
