NEW SOUTH WALES COVID-19 UPDATE: RESTRICTIONS ON PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN IN VICTORIA
Please note that as at 08 July 2020, the NSW Government has implemented restrictions on people who have been in Victoria.
Under Public Health (COVID-19 Border Control) Order 2020, if you are from or have been in Victoria within the past 14 days, you must not enter NSW unless it is your usual place of residence. However, you are permitted to enter NSW to obtain medical or other care, or to fulfil a legal obligation, or are providing a critical service.
People who have been in Victoria in the last 14 days, who enter NSW from 8 July must:
- self-isolate at home or in other suitable accommodation for 14 days
- not leave your accommodation except for the following reasons: obtaining medical care, complying with a legal obligation, an emergency, providing critical services or leaving NSW
- not let other people into your residence unless they live there.
We will be issuing Bulletins and have updated our QR Code Declarations to ensure that any person who has been in Victoria for the past 14 days will not be permitted to enter or participate at a KNSW Sanctioned Events – this includes practice, come & try and competition.
ACT COVID-19 UPDATE: STAGE 3 RESTRICTIONS ON ‘PAUSE’
As foreshadowed by the ACT Government on Wednesday 8 July 2020, planned Stage 3 restrictions will not take effect this Friday, 10 July.
The ACT Chief Health Officer has advised that the ACT should remain in Step 2.2 of restrictions, following a Public Health Risk Assessment (Check Point) considered on 9 July 2020. The situation in Victoria remains very concerning, and there is uncertainty of the full impact of the situation on the ACT. A further check point will be considered in two weeks’ time.
We understand this will be frustrating for local businesses, as many have been planning for this change to come into effect from Friday. This situation is disappointing for all. However, while the Government wants to support the recovery of our economy, the public health of the community remains the priority.
We shall continue to comply with the requirements of Step 2.2 of Canberra’s Recovery Plan, as outlined in the existing Public Health Direction: Public Health (Restricted Activities – Gatherings, Business or Undertakings) Emergency Direction 2020 (No 3).
