In a statement, NSW Health says when confirmed, the total number of Omicron cases in NSW will increase to five.

“Everyone on the flight is considered a close contact and will need to get tested immediately for COVID-19 and isolate for 14 days, regardless of their vaccination status,” A NSW Health spokesperson says.

“NSW Health is contacting all passengers and flight crew to advise them of their isolation requirements. They can also call NSW Health on 1800 943 553 for further advice.”
