“I will be isolating and will continue to work from home. I encourage anyone who is unwell to test and to take any extra precautions to keep their families and neighbours well.”

Mr Albanese first contracted COVID-19 in April amid the Federal Election campaign, forcing him off the hustings for a week.  

It is not clear how long Mr Albanese will be in isolation for.

The legal requirement for positive cases to isolate was scrapped on October 14.  

More to come.
