Hotspots revoked07 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.
