Queensland Police will be stationed at Bundaberg Airport from Tuesday, 7 July to check that arriving passengers haven't travelled from Victoria.

From midday 3 July 2020, anyone who has been in a declared hotspot within the past 14 days will have to complete 14 days quarantine in government-arranged accommodation at their own expense.

All of Victoria is currently a designated hotspot.

Given the increase in numbers of positive cases being recorded in Victoria, there will be increased vigilance at arriving ports to minimise spread of COVID-19.

Police will be stationed at the Bundaberg Airport to check all arriving passengers' identities and confirm they have not travelled from Victoria.

Checks are also being done at Brisbane Airport but given the high numbers of people travelling through Brisbane, the extra check at Bundaberg is being done as a safety precaution to ensure no-one slips through unchallenged.

At this stage Police will be present at the Airport every day. They will monitor the situation and re-evaluate later.

Airport staff will assist Police and minimum disruption to travellers is expected.
