Preparing for respiratory illnesses during winter
The ACT Government is prepared to respond to COVID-19 and influenza (flu) over the winter period.
We have looked at a variety of scenarios that might arise and how they could be managed.
In addition to COVID-19, we are expecting widespread flu this winter as this will be the first significant flu season in 2 years.
Our winter preparedness plan 2022 (PDF 301KB) ensures we can scale our response depending on the needs of the community, and to balance health, social and economic factors.
