To All Our Valued Clients
The Lord Howe Island Tourism Association has consulted with its accommodation, food and beverage and tour operator members and would like to strongly advise visitors to Lord Howe return a negative PCR or RAT test in the 24 hours prior to arrival on the island.
Lord Howe is a small community with its limited guest numbers at capacity into 2023. The Gower Wilson Memorial Hospital is a small facility without an Intensive Care Unit.
If you arrive on Lord Howe and present with Covid-19, you are required to isolate at your accommodation until you return a negative test. Extended accommodation is at guests’ own expense and impacts the stays of next-arriving guests.
Returning a negative PCR or RAT test is a good indicator but is not foolproof; as a bottom line, if you feel unwell, please do not travel and instead postpone your holidays on Lord Howe for a future date.
