ACT Health will remove Victoria as a covid-affected area from 11.59pm tonight (February 17). 

The announcement follows the improved covid situation in Victoria, which will see the state lift its lockdown tonight.

Travel restrictions to the ACT from Victoria will be removed, and anyone in the ACT from Victoria currently in quarantine can leave quarantine after 11.59pm tonight unless they have visited an identified exposure site or are a confirmed close contact.
