Canberra's recovery

Canberra’s Recovery Plan: Easing of Restrictions

Since restrictions were put in place in early 2020 to limit the spread of coronavirus in our community, the ACT Government has kept Canberrans informed of any changes in restrictions.

From 9am on Wednesday 14 April 2021, the ACT will make some minor changes to the COVID-normal public health measures which currently apply to restricted businesses.

These changes affect cinemas and indoor performance venues (with forward facing, fixed and tiered seating).

With these additional easing measures, it is critically important that all patrons, performers and staff at these venues continue to follow the usual COVID Safe practices.

This includes staying home if you are unwell, getting tested if you have COVID-19 symptoms, no matter how mild, practicing hand and respiratory hygiene and checking in with the Check In CBR app.
