The decision by New South Wales (NSW) and Victoria to introduce border restrictions is welcomed by the ACT Government. It will significantly reduce the likelihood of the virus spreading from Victoria into the Canberra region.
To support this decision, the ACT Government will further strengthen the border protections put in place last week. From Midnight on Tuesday, anyone travelling to the ACT from Victoria will be denied entry unless they receive an exemption from either the NSW Government or the ACT Government.
Residents of the ACT or NSW will be able to return home, but they will be required to self-quarantine for 14 days.
