All arrivals are being screened at the airport and sent to quarantine at home for three days.

People who have attended any of those venues listed by Western Australia Health are asked to immediately get tested and self-isolate and follow the evolving public health advice.

But more venues are expected to be added, with travellers urged to keep checking the website.

NSW will reflect the stay at home stay at home restrictions that apply to Western Australia.

People who arrive in Sydney from WA from midnight must complete a declaration that confirms they have not attended a venue of concern.
