Prime Minister Anthony Albanese has tested positive to COVID-19 for a second time this year.
Mr Albanese announced on Monday he had returned a positive result on a PCR test.
He said he will be isolating but will continue working from home.
“This afternoon I had a routine PCR test which has returned a positive result for COVID-19,” the Prime Minister posted on social media.
“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.
