Keep up the good work

Thanks to Canberrans being so responsive to the COVID-19 pandemic, the ACT remains in a good position, with no active cases and no new cases of COVID-19 for more than 50 days.

Despite the encouraging position of the ACT, we don’t exist in a vacuum and the situation could change quickly, both in the ACT and in our neighbouring jurisdictions.

We’re all used to our new physical distancing and personal hygiene regime, so let’s keep it up for our own safety—and the safety of our family, friends, colleagues and the wider community. It’s still important to get tested if you get any COVID-like symptoms.

General information

ACT Health reminds anyone who has been outside the ACT to monitor the health website of the jurisdiction they visited for updates on locations where confirmed cases have spent time while potentially infectious and where alerts may be in place. Please adhere to the health advice on those websites. In particular, take note of the latest areas in  Queensland and NSW.

Likewise, if you intend travelling, please monitor the jurisdiction’s website. The advice on affected areas is changing regularly, so keep up to date with the latest advice. Please be mindful and aware of how easily the virus spreads.

It is everyone’s responsibility to follow the health advice and do what we can to ensure we keep ourselves and the community safe. We continue to ask Canberrans to:

  1. Avoid large crowds

  3. Continue good hand and respiratory hygiene and
  4. Stay home if you are unwell and get tested if you are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms.
