Stay COVID-19 safe
We continue to remind Canberrans that we are still in lockdown and that now is not the time to become complacent.
This means minimising your time in the community and only leaving your home for the approved reasons.
Where possible, you should also continue to undertake essential activities within your local region.
When out in the community, make sure you are:
- wearing a mask and wearing it properly
- maintaining good hand hygiene
- physical distancing from people outside of your household – at least 1.5 metres, and
- check in everywhere you go with the Check In CBR app.
