The ACT CHO Kerryn Coleman has issued an updated alert on July 31 regarding the COVID-19 situation.
In summary, a new Stay at Home requirement has been introduced in response to the COVID-19 situation in South East Queensland.
Due to high transmissibility of the Delta strain, the potential for several undetected chains of transmission, and an anticipated large number of exposure locations, this requirement is being applied retrospectively to all travellers who spent time in the affected areas on or after July 21 and have entered, or intend to enter the ACT.
See the ACT COVID-19 website for more information.
Anyone who is under a stay-at-home requirement should not visit or work in a high-risk setting unless it is for an approved essential purpose.
Anyone entering an aged care facility to work or visit should wear a mask while in indoor areas of the premises.
This does not apply to residents.
The COVID-19 situation can change rapidly and as such, advice for high-risk settings is subject to change regularly.
ACT Health will continue to keep you updated through these Chief Health Officer alerts.
