COVID-19 Honour Roll
In January 2021, the Australian Government announced that individuals recognised for their contribution, service or achievement relating to COVID-19 would feature on a dedicated COVID-19 honours roll as well as the official Australian honours database.
"The ongoing response to the COVID-19 pandemic, which has challenged us in ways we could not have imagined, has been made possible by many many people ... In the midst of the challenges we have witnessed countless examples of Australians who have worked tirelessly and done extraordinary things.
As a nation we should give thanks to these people ... they deserve thanks, recognition and to be celebrated."
His Excellency General the Honourable David Hurley AC DSC (Retd), Governor-General of Australia
