ACT Covid Restrictions Update

September 17, 2021 By Southpoint Tuggeranong

Restrictions easing from this Friday 12th November 2021

With the ACT reaching 95% of the eligible population fully vaccinated, the next stage of the ACT’s Pathway Forward has been brought forward to 11:59pm on Thursday 11 November 2021.
Changes that will come into effect from Friday 12 November will include:
  • The ACT will move to a default one person per two square metre density limit (1 per 2 sqm) across most indoor settings and industries, including hospitality and retail.
  • No density limits will apply in outdoor spaces for most activities and events will be able to have more people before requiring an exemption.
  • Drinking while standing will be permitted at licensed venues, cafes and restaurants.
These baseline measures are anticipated to remain in place over the Christmas period and will be reviewed in late January 2022.Throughout this time we ask all customers to follow ACT health’s directives and remember to use the Check-In CBR app to help keep you 'COVID safe' the next time you visit.
