|Individual and contact location attributes|
|Individual||The individual is the primary agent entity in the model. Each individual has an age, a household, a (possible) daytime hub, an activity state, a current infection state, and time-of-infection (when infected) that explicitly tracks the progression of the infectious disease. Individuals move between different locations at different time periods, making contacts with other individuals.|
|Locations||Description||When contact occurs||Who participates in contact||Average number of contacts|
|Household||Each household is made up from a certain number of individuals following census data, spatially located.||Every day during Day and Night cycle.||Members of each household||Average household size is 2.54 individual|
|Childcare||Child care and pre-schools; number and size determined from local government data.||Weekdays during Day cycle.||Child (age 0–4) and adult (worker) individuals who are allocated into the hub if they are active*.||Maximum group size is 10.|
|School||Primary and secondary schools; number, size and age structure determined from state education department data.||Weekdays during Day cycle.||Child (ages 5–17) and adult (teacher) individuals who are allocated into the hub if they are active*.||Maximum group size is 10.|
|Adult education||Tertiary and vocational education institutions, number and size determined from state education department data.||Weekdays during Day cycle.||Young adult and adult individuals who are allocated into the hub if they are active*.||Maximum group size is 10.|
|Workplace||Number and size of determined for local government business survey data.||Weekdays during Day cycle.||Adult individuals who are allocated into the hub if they are active*.||Maximum group size is 10.|
|Community||Represents all contact between individuals in the community that is not repeated on a daily basis.||Everyday during Day cycle.||All individuals make contacts if they are active*, contact is random but weighted towards pairs with nearby household locations.||4 contacts for each individual (2 if community contact reduction is in effect)|
* All individuals are active during day cycles unless: he/she is symptomatically infected and chooses to withdraw to household (50% chance for adults, 90% for children); or if his/her school or workplace is affected by social distancing interventions; or if he/she is a parent of a child who is inactive (only one parent per family is affected this way).
