Restrictions on travel from coronavirus-hit parts of NSW to the ACT will remain in place for another week.
ACT authorities confirmed on Tuesday the public health direction would remain in place until January 13, with a further decision due the day before.
Anyone who has recently been in greater Sydney (including the northern beaches), the Central Coast and Wollongong local government areas of NSW – and is not an ACT resident – is legally not permitted to enter the ACT without a valid exemption.
If people from these areas need to travel to the ACT for extraordinary circumstances, they need to apply for an exemption at least three days prior to their travel.
ACT residents returning from COVID-affected areas of NSW can still return to the ACT, but still need to notify ACT Health of their intention to return via an online declaration form and enter quarantine for 14 days.
ACT authorities are particularly concerned about the Berala cluster in Sydney’s west.
