To help slow the spread, ACT Government is requiring Canberrans to only leave their homes for the following reasons:

  • shopping for what you need – food and necessary supplies
  • medical or health care needs, including compassionate requirements
  • exercise in compliance with the public gathering requirements
  • work and study if you can’t work or learn remotely

The further limits on public gatherings to just two people will be difficult, but have been introduced to limit the spread of the virus.  ACT Authorities will be making people aware of the new requirements and issuing warnings in the first instance. The ACT, along with the other States and Territories, will be moving to implement stronger enforcement measures in the near future (such as fines) to ensure consistency across jurisdictions.
