The lockdown in the ACT is extended by another four weeks and has ended any hopes that it would end on a Friday as scheduled.
The new date for the end of the lockdown is set for October 15th, and health officials are scheduled to revisit the rules at mid-point, a report said.
While non-essential recreational activities are allowed for up to two hours in ACT, national parks are still closed.
It encompasses Namadgi National Park, Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve, Lower Cotter Catchment, Cotter Precinct, Kambah Pool, Uriarra Crossing, Woods Reserve Campground, Northern Borders Campground, and Googong Foreshores.
ACT Policing issued a reminder to residents of the lockdown policy on Tuesday, following the fact that around 100 people were requested to leave Cotter Road and Paddy’s River Road on the weekend.
The changes that were announced this week include increased sporting events, in-person real property viewings, and the addition of staff to businesses that offer click-and-collect services.
