Covid restrictions to stay in place for at least another week


Travel restrictions for people heading to the ACT from Sydney, the Central Coast and Wollongong are likely to remain in place until at least the new year.

ACT Chief Health Officer, Dr Kerryn Coleman, has decided the growing cluster across the border still poses a risk to the territory.

Meanwhile, there are calls for the ACT Government to make it mandatory for patrons to complete contact tracing details when they enter a venue in Canberra.

More than 30 thousand people are using the Canberra check-in QR code every day, with businesses using the app able to increase their venue capacity.

The ACT Branch of the Australian Hotels Association wants the government to go a step further and make it mandatory for customers to provide their details.
