Hotspots revoked

07 August 2020

The NT Chief Health Officer has officially revoked the following hotspot areas for the purpose of travel to the NT:

  • City of Brisbane
  • Logan City
  • City of Ipswich
  • Eurobodalla Shire
  • City of Blue Mountains

From today people arriving to the NT from these places will not have to enter mandatory quarantine.

“Using a Public Health risk approach to inform our decisions to revoke declared COVID-19 hotspots is a considered method,” said Chief Health Officer Doctor Hugh Heggie.

“In consultation with the Department of Health Public Health Executive Team, I closely monitor the daily data, review jurisdictional and modelling reports and the current epidemiology of COVID-19 in these Geographical Areas of Risks.”

Anyone currently in mandatory quarantine from these revoked hotspots have commenced the process of exiting.
