As the Prime Minister said in his statement on Sunday 10 May, we are currently establishing a new COVID-19 Alert System run by a new Joint Biosecurity Centre, which will be established swiftly over the coming days. The details of the system, including how the alert level will be communicated to the public are still being finalised and we will have further details on this in due course.
