Extension of travel ban to protect Australians from the coronavirus for another week starting 15 Feb 2020

The National Security Committee of Cabinet has today agreed to extend the entry restrictions on foreign nationals who have recently been in mainland China for a further week from 15 February 2020 to protect Australians from the risk of coronavirus.

As always, our priority is to keep Australians safe. This decision is underpinned by medical advice and recommendations from the Commonwealth's Chief Medical Officer and chief medical officers from each state and territory, on the steps necessary to contain the spread of coronavirus.

The Chief Medical Officer confirmed that our arrangements to protect Australians from coronavirus are working and there are no confirmed cases among Australian citizens and residents who have returned to Australia since the introduction of the border measures on 1 February 2020.
