SCHOOL holidays have begun and ACT Health is warning the community to stay covid safe when travelling or welcoming visitors to the region.
“If welcoming relatives or visitors from interstate to Canberra, please ask them not to come if they are feeling unwell,” says an ACT Health spokesperson.
“Discuss with them how you can look after each other’s health during their stay and ensure the advice about physical distancing and hand and respiratory hygiene is being followed when out and about.”
If travelling, ACT Health urges Canberrans to check the covid website of the state or territory they’re travelling to in case there are cases there, be vigilant with hand and respiratory hygiene, maintain physical distancing from other groups, and stay home if feeling unwell.
When back home, ACT Health says Canberrans should monitor the covid website of the state or territory they visited for two weeks to see if any cases come up.
“Follow the website’s advice about testing and self-isolation. If you feel unwell with COVID symptoms while away or when you return, please get tested immediately and self-isolate until you get the result,” the spokesperson says.
The ACT remains covid-free and the number of negative tests recorded in the ACT is now 93,307.
