COVID-19 update - 26 June 2020

Be COVID-19 safe if you're travelling

At the outset, I want to again acknowledge the tremendous effort delivered right across the NT Public Sector in support of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic response.

Many of us are now keen to take advantage of the pending school holidays and cooler weather to explore the Territory. Happy days! Please travel safely.

If you’re thinking about travelling interstate, I encourage you to plan ahead for your return to work.

Until border restrictions for interstate arrivals are lifted on 17 July, anyone who needs to travel interstate will still need to undertake 14 days of self-quarantine on your return. These arrangements cease from 17 July.

On 17 July, interstate border controls will be lifted but there will still be some restrictions in place to help keep the community safe.

Anyone arriving in the NT will continue to be required to complete a border arrival form that includes details of where you have been.

If you have travelled to or through an identified COVID-19 hot spot in the last 28 days, you will be required to undertake 14 days of mandatory self-quarantine at your own expense.

Whether you plan to travel interstate before or after 17 July, have a discussion with your manager about additional precautions you may need to take when you return, such as working from home.

It is essential that Territorians continue to take personal responsibility for the principles of physical distancing and hand hygiene in the ‘new normal’.

I also encourage you to download the COVIDSafe app, if you haven’t already.
