COVID-19 quarantine and emergency accommodation programs

Find quarantine and emergency accommodation programs as part of Victoria’s public health response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

COVID-19 Quarantine Victoria (CQV) is responsible for Victoria’s COVID-19 Accommodation Program.

Information for former quarantine accommodation residents who received a blood-glucose finger-prick test before 20 August 2020

Residents who may have had their blood-glucose levels tested while in quarantine accommodation before 20 August 2020 are being contacted by Safer Care Victoria to undergo precautionary screening due to a potential risk of cross-contamination and infection.

Blood-glucose level testing devices intended for use by one person were used across multiple residents. This presents a clinical risk of cross-contamination and blood borne viruses (hepatitis B, hepatitis C and HIV).

If you believe or you are unsure if you had this test, please call 1800 356 061 (8am to 8pm, seven days a week).

There is no risk to current residents in COVID-19 Accommodation or those who were in quarantine from 20 August 2020.

Visit the Safer Care Victoria website for more information.
