If you are diagnosed with COVID-19, you must immediately isolate for at least 7 days at your private home, accommodation (eg where you are staying for a holiday), other suitable premises, or an address given to you by an emergency officer.
If you are a close contact of a confirmed case of COVID-19 you must get tested and quarantine for at least 7 days. You are a close contact if you usually live with or have stayed in the same household (for more than 4 hours) during a confirmed case's infectious period.
From 1 January 2022, there will be changes to what you need to do when you come into contact with a COVID-19 case. Requirements will be eased for vaccinated people.
People diagnosed with COVID-19 and close contacts can travel and relocate to alternative isolation or quarantine premises. Relocation can be from Queensland to anywhere in Australia and for Queensland residents returning from anywhere in Australia to complete their isolation or quarantine.
