Passengers aboard COVID case flight sought

NSW Health is working to contact passengers aboard a flight from Melbourne to Sydney on Saturday after a fellow traveller tested positive for COVID-19.

In a statement, the Department said it was seeking passengers who were close contacts on flight JQ506 from Melbourne to Sydney on 25 July.

“Passengers who were close contacts are being placed into self-isolation for 14 days after the flight and asked to monitor for COVID-19 symptoms, and get tested, even if they have the mildest of symptoms,” NSW Health said.

It said a woman in her 30s who tested positive for COVID-19 was a passenger on the flight.

“She is in isolation and contact tracing is underway. Close contacts on the flight were seated in rows 10, 11, 12, 13 and 14.”
