Restrictions to ease further
Chief Minister Andrew Barr announced on Wednesday that quarantine time for fully vaccinated close contacts in the ACT would be halved, as the territory follows NSW and Victoria in slashing the isolation period from 14 days to seven.
Casual contacts will also no longer have to quarantine at all from next Monday, under changes to contact tracing rules announced by ACT chief health officer Dr Kerryn Coleman.
A further set of changes will come into effect on Friday, including increase to household and outdoor gatherings, hospitality density limits and scrapping a requirement for face masks outdoors.
From Monday, travel will open up for fully vaccinated people between Victoria, NSW and ACT, while international returnees will also have more opportunity to return home to the territory.
