Bushfires and COVID-19

People in self-quarantine or self-isolation due to COVID-19 can leave their home if they are in an emergency or their home is unsafe. They should try to get back home as soon as they can safely.

During an emergency, if people need to attend an emergency relief centre or a Bushfire Last Resort Refuge, they need to stay outside, alert emergency services (eg, Police or relief authorities at the location) and follow instructions. People should review their Bushfire Survival Plan.
