Be aware of eased restrictions as ACT again records no new COVID-19 cases

An update to this story was posted on Monday 4 May.

Canberrans are being asked to be aware of new regulations regarding easing of restrictions as the ACT records another day with no new cases and no active cases of COVID-19.

The ACT’s total of confirmed cases remains at 106, of which three deaths were recorded and the remaining 103 have recovered and been released from self-isolation.

The number of negative tests in the ACT is now 9,296.

Acting ACT Chief Health Officer Dr Vanessa Johnston has reminded Canberrans of the importance of being aware of new regulations.

“Although some restrictions are easing, we must continue to maintain physical distancing and good hygiene practices at all times,” Dr Johnston said.

“This pandemic is not over, and this means we have to be aware of limitations which are in place to keep our most vulnerable community members safe.”

Household visits

In the ACT, restrictions on gatherings inside the family home have been relaxed to allow one household (e.g. two adults and any dependent children) to visit another, as long as there are no other visitors present. Physical distancing measures of one person per 4 square metres must be observed.

Where visitors do not come from the same household, the limit on visitors to your home remains at two people.

Travel

Restrictions on travel in NSW have been eased. Two adults and any dependent children can leave the ACT to visit friends and family in NSW, for the purposes of providing care and support. It is important that Canberrans follow the regulations of NSW if they visit.

Shopping

Canberrans can now leave their households for non-essential shopping such as for retail and electronics.

Stores must put in place measures to ensure staff and customers maintain physical distancing by keeping 1.5m between themselves and other people, and all stores must adhere to the one person per 4 square metres rule.
