Virgin COVID scare as passengers ordered to self-isolate after international arrivals bypass quarantine, fly from Sydney to Melbourne

Two international travellers have sparked a COVID scare in Melbourne after bypassing mandatory quarantine.

The arrivals, believed to be relatives from Germany, arrived in Sydney on Saturday morning.

However, instead of going from the International Terminal into hotel quarantine, they made their way to the Domestic Terminal and boarded a Virgin flight bound for Melbourne.

The 130 other passengers on flight VA838 have been urged to self-isolate immediately and contact the Department of Health and Human Services.

In addition, anyone who was at Melbourne Airport’s domestic terminal on Saturday afternoon should be vigilant for symptoms of coronavirus.
