ACT Health is reminding Canberrans to avoid large crowds and maintain physical distancing as the ACT again records no new cases of COVID-19 in the past 24 hours, leaving the ACT’s total at 113. There are five active cases in the ACT, all of which were recorded last week, between 8 and 10 July.
A total of 105 cases have recovered from COVID-19 in the ACT and the death toll remains at three. There are no COVID-19 patients in Canberra hospitals.
The number of negative tests in the ACT is now 38,572.
ACT Health again ask Canberrans to remember four requirements in the coming weeks:
- Avoid large crowds;
- Keep 1.5 metres apart whenever possible;
- Continue good hand and respiratory hygiene; and
- Stay home if you are unwell and get tested if you are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms.
