Anthony Albanese To Emerge From COVID-19 Isolation, Scott Morrison Claims Opposition Leader Has Had 'Quiet Week'

Federal Opposition Leader Anthony Albanese's home isolation is set to end as he recovers from COVID-19.

The Labor leader tested positive to the virus last Thursday, forcing him off the election trail for a week while he campaigned from the confines of his Sydney home.

He will officially launch the Labor Party's campaign in Perth on Sunday and says he is looking forward to coming out of isolation but has been advised to cut down on his work hours.

"My doctor tells me I have to take things easy, particularly in the first few days to not do the 16 and 20-hour days that I was doing," he told WSFM Sydney radio.

"But it will be good to be out and about," he said.

Meanwhile, the seven-day isolation rules for household contacts of people with COVID-19 will end at 12.01 on Friday in Western Australia, while Tasmania will on Monday become the final state to drop the requirement.
