A previous case, a male aged in his 60s, has been reclassified from “under investigation” to “overseas acquired from a cruise ship”. ACT Health is confident there has been no risk to the wider community as the man did all the right things once returning to Canberra.

Of the 106 confirmed cases in the ACT, 99 have now recovered from COVID-19 and have been released from self-isolation.
