You do not need to have traveled to a high-risk region, however, to be at risk of the virus. People who have been within 6 feet of someone infected are at risk and should self-quarantine as a precaution.
Self-quarantine involves staying at home for 14 days and avoiding contact with other people or animals. This means not going to work, taking public transport, running errands or having visitors stop by your home.
While friends and family can drop off essential items, they should not come into contact with the infected person. Food can be delivered but should be left on doorstep.

It was determined that one of the six crew members did not come in close enough contact with the patient to contract the virus, and that person was cleared to return to duty.

Coronavirus: Airline staff enlisted to work in Melbourne's frontline quarantine hotels.
By 9News Staff. Tweet Facebook Mail. QantasVirgin Australia and Jetstar staff are working on the frontline of Melbourne's quarantine hotels amid serious safety concerns, 9News can reveal. Ground staff, cabin crew, baggage handlers and pilots are among the hundreds of workers helping to manage crowds, distribute food and co-ordinate the fresh-air breaks for returned travellers in the hotels. It comes as the Victorian Government has said the workers are operating under the watch of Corrections Victoria staff, with prison guards now taking the lead on security in the quarantine locations.
Despite that, the Transport Workers' Union says there is little to no training being offered to those aviation workers taking up the new role of residential support officer.
The move has come to light after serious safety concerns were revealed by a woman in quarantine at the Melbourne Airport Holiday Inn hotel. She said during her experience at the hotel, security guards and hotel staff were seen not wearing masks or gloves — and that those who did, did not dispose of protective equipment properly.
Security guard numbers have also been cut, the woman said, while other staff members told her they had been working in a number of different quarantine hotels and that external guests were still checking in as usual. Just one of the new cases is a returned traveller in hotel quarantine. Sixteen have been linked to known outbreaks, four were detected through routine testing, and 53 are still under investigation.
