Monthly COVID-19 update

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic the ACT Chief Health Officer provided monthly update reports on the status of the public health emergency. These  reports are no longer produced following the lifting of the COVID-19 Management Declaration on 28 February 2023.

Past reports are available on the Chief Health Officer update on status of Public Health Emergency page.

ACT Influenza and Respiratory Syncytial Virus reporting

Case numbers for influenza and Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) are reported seasonally.

In 2024, data reporting for influenza and RSV will commence when notification numbers indicate the influenza season has commenced – this varies from year to year but likely to be around May/June. Reporting will remain available until the end of the season, usually around September/October.

For previous flu reports in the ACT, please visit the ACT influenza reports page.
