If they do it at home, all members of their household will be prevented from leaving for the fortnight."While in home quarantine, nobody from the house can leave the home for any reason and no-one is allowed to visit," he said.Sources have told the ABC that non-Victorian politicians and their staff will be encouraged to avoid public settings while in Canberra for Parliament.The visitors will be encouraged to only split their time between Parliament House and their accommodation.Politicians in quarantine will undergo COVID-19 testing on day 12 and need to receive a negative result before they can leave.Senate President Scott Ryan said he would make further announcements about the resumption of Parliament before August 24.Parliament to resume to extend JobKeeper, JobSeekerThe August 24 sitting fortnight is slated to be the last time Parliament meets until the Government hands down its budget in October.The Government delayed May's budget as it contended with the early phase of the coronavirus pandemic.Coronavirus questions answeredBreaking down the latest news and research to understand how the world is living through an epidemic, this is the ABC's Coronacast podcast.Read moreThe Government needs to pass legislation to extend its JobKeeper and JobSeeker programs beyond their slated September end dates.The JobKeeper wage subsidy will continue until March next year, but payments will fall from $1,500 to $1,200 a fortnight for full-time workers after September.

"We believe this [is] a practical solution to the emergency circumstances which are there now, and one which should be time limited and restricted to where it's absolutely necessary," he said.The Opposition Leader said other politicians who could not travel could also use the video link system, allowing them to ask questions or speak to legislation. However, Mr Albanese said it would not affect quorums or voting patterns, which parliamentarians needed to be physically present for. "As far as possible Parliament should operate in the normal way but these are not normal circumstances, which is why they require flexibility which Labor is prepared to engage with," he said.Mr Albanese said he discussed the idea with Prime Minister Scott Morrison and hoped there would be more discussions ahead of Parliament returning.Read more about coronavirus:Charting the pandemic: These numbers show how dire it has become in VictoriaHow Melbourne's stage 4 restrictions compare to the world's toughest lockdowns
