Canberrans urged not to travel to Sydney

Share Canberra's trusted news:


THE ACT government is strongly advising Canberrans not to travel to Victoria and greater Sydney after cases continue to grow in both areas.

Travel to Victoria or greater Sydney should only be done for absolutely essential reasons, the government says.

“We do not issue this advice lightly – but it is a recognition of the fact that the risk to Canberrans of contracting COVID-19 in greater Sydney, and potentially bringing it back to the ACT with them, is currently higher than we would like,” they say.

“We are asking Canberrans to continue exercising the good judgement they have shown during the pandemic thus far and to respect this advice.

“Regarding regional NSW, we advise Canberrans to be aware of the COVID-19 situation in the area you are travelling in, and reassess your need to travel to areas with known cases.

“We are also reminding Canberrans to exercise caution when travelling, regardless of location. While travelling, it is your responsibility to maintain physical distancing and practice good hygiene, as well as to adhere to the rules of the jurisdiction you are travelling to.”

The ACT still has one active coronavirus case, leaving the total at 113.

The number of negative tests in the ACT is now 50,743.
