Quotes from Chief Minister Michael Gunner
“It is now even easier to be safe from Coronavirus if you live in Katherine.
“If you are eligible to get vaccinated the best time to book your appointment is now.
“In partnership with the Feds, the Territory Labor Government’s vaccine rollout is now seeing us protect 1000 Territorians a day.
“We have made the tough decisions necessary during the COVID-19 pandemic so that the Northern Territory can be the safest, the best and be the comeback capital.
“Katherine is buzzing – tourism, defence, cattle, agriculture and more – and this is a huge reason the Territory is leading the comeback.”
