Travel Restrictions to Remote Areas
Due to the COVID-19 risk, many Aboriginal communities in NSW are uncomfortable about tourists travelling to their towns and communities.
Please be respectful of the concerns and wishes of the local community: Before you travel to or through a small remote town or community, please check the local town’s Community Action Plan or contact the Local Council for advice.
Advice for workers and organisations
It is crucial that workers do not visit Aboriginal communities if they are ill, no matter how mild the symptoms, or if they have had contact with someone with COVID-19 in the past 14 days.
The risk to Aboriginal communities from visiting workers could increase depending on the nature of the work, the locations the worker has travelled from and work practices.
To mitigate this risk, organisations with staff who travel to rural and remote Aboriginal communities should complete a COVID-19 Safety Plan which includes consideration of the issues outlined in this checklist.
