ALRTA Special News – 1 August 2020


Members are advised that overnight the Northern Territory Government declared the Queensland areas of Brisbane, Logan and Ipswich to be a COVID-19 hotspot. Truck drivers who have been in these areas in the past 14 days will not be allowed entry to the NT or will be required to undergo a supervised 14 day quarantine period at a cost of $2,500.

Given the extremely short notice, it is possible that members or other drivers are already loaded and in transit to the NT. Please help spread the word to drivers who may be affected.
