Mr Morrison has hinted that tomorrow’s National Cabinet will result in reduced restrictions for people considered to be a close contact of a positive COVID-19 case.
The PM said the current system was “impractical” and the high volume of cases would lead to a large economic and medical impact of non-positive close contacts isolating as a precaution.
“You just have to monitor your symptoms, you have got to be conscious of where you are going, not the best idea to go and visit an aged care facility in that situation for a week or so,” Mr Morrison said.
“And also to take your normal precautions of wearing masks and things like this.
“This is how people responsibly manage their own wellbeing and the wellbeing of others in the Omicron pandemic.”
