Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2021 Week 02 Hansard (Tuesday, 9 February 2021) . . Page.. 285 ..


congratulate all involved and affected for their combined efforts that have seen the ACT remain free of community transmission.

I would particularly like to thank our public health teams and supporting teams across government, which surged to assist across Christmas and New Year when needed. This was a huge collaborative effort involving staff from across the ACT government who have all stepped up to support our COVID-19 response at short notice over this period. On behalf of everyone in the ACT, I sincerely thank you for your tireless work.

On that note, I remind all Canberrans who may be planning to travel interstate to please be mindful of travel restrictions currently in place for any COVID-affected areas. I urge Canberrans to follow and keep abreast of the advice before considering any non-essential travel. Please continue to follow the guidance on both ACT Health’s COVID-19 website and the COVID-19 website of the state or territory you may be travelling to. And remember that, while travelling, it is your responsibility to maintain physical distancing and practise good hygiene as well as to be aware of and adhere to the restrictions in place in the jurisdiction you are travelling to.

In closing, I encourage all Canberrans to remain vigilant and keep up the good work that has kept us in such a strong position in the face of this pandemic.

I present the following papers:

COVID-19—Update on Government response—Ministerial statement, 9 February 2021.
