A 70-year-old man who travelled from Indonesia to Darwin on his own yacht has tested positive to COVID-19.

Key points:

  • The NT government says all border arrival requirements have been met
  • All international travellers need to do 14 days of mandatory quarantine
  • The man did not enter the community, NT Health says

In a statement, a NT government spokesman said the man arrived in the NT on July 13 and had mild symptoms.

“The skipper and one passenger remained on [the] boat until they were transferred to CNR [Howard Springs quarantine facility] on 14 July, at no time did they enter into the community,” he said.

“All necessary border arrival requirements were met.”

The 70-year-old man was a NT resident returning from overseas, the spokesman confirmed.

International travellers entering the Northern Territory need to do 14 days of mandatory supervised quarantine when they arrive, at a personal cost of $2,500.

To date, 192 cases of COVID-19 have been diagnosed in the NT.

There are currently eight active cases in the Northern Territory, four of which were acquired overseas.

To date, 277,564 COVID-19 tests have been done in the NT and there are 1,384 people in mandatory quarantine.
