The 21-year-old man, who arrived on an international flight to the Northern Territory on Thursday, February 11, tested positive to COVID-19 in the past 24 hours.
The man is asymptomatic and has been moved from quarantine to Royal Darwin Hospital, in line with established procedures.
The Department of Chief Minister and Cabinet said that “due to strict quarantine measures in place for all arriving Marines”, the case was “promptly detected” and the Marine “had no direct contact with the general community”.
