New ACT Coronavis Travel Rules for Victorians Canberra Times


Anyone who leaves Victoria at midnight and enters the law has been issued a new residence requirement following the announcement of Snap Lock in the state. Non-ACT residents leaving Victoria on Friday will be banned from regional tours unless they are granted a waiver. ACT residents returning from Victoria after 11.9pm on Thursday must complete the online declaration form 2 hours before arrival or by midnight on Friday. All passengers are required to go directly to the residence where they spend the stay and only go for the intended purpose. Those entering the area from Victoria over the age of 12 must wear a mask when leaving home, except without strenuous exercise outside, ACT Health advised. ACT Health Minister Rachel Stephen Smith said about 68,800 people had been in Melbourne in the past one day. There is a person in quarantine who participated in the nearest contact exposure site. Forty informal contacts have been identified. ACT’s chief health officer, Karin Coleman, said a large number of high-risk sites were in Victoria. “In many of these places they have a high risk of transmission, so we expect to have a high number in each of those sites,” she said. Dr. Coleman said contacts are still missing to understand how the virus was transmitted from the initial case of a man who entered Victoria after completing a hotel quarantine in Adelaide. She said ACT Health would contact 19 people who had announced they were in the city of Vitalsia, where the outbreak began, so they could get a COVID-1 test in 24 hours. Dr. Coleman said those individuals should be separated until they get negative test results. ACT Health has reiterated its advice to Canberra residents who have come to Victoria at areas identified as at risk, they should be tested and self-isolated until their results are obtained. No non-ACT residents who have visited the nearest contact exposure site may enter the area without any approved discount. In the past 24 hours, 973 tests have been performed on ACT, and Drs. Coleman said the number should increase by more than 1 round00 days.
