Sumary of ACT adds high-risk LGAs, eight new cases:
- Andrew BrownAAPCamera IconThe ACT has recorded eight new COVID-19 infections in the most recent reporting period.
- It comes as the territory government declared six new local council areas in NSW and Victoria as high-risk areas, the new designation coming into effect at 11.59pm on Friday.
- The new high-risk areas include East Gippsland, Mitchell Shire, Moira and Mornington Peninsula areas in Victoria, along with Federal and Warrumbungle Shire locations in NSW.
- The declaration means anyone who has visited the high-risk areas in the past 14 days and enters the ACT will need to apply for an exemption.
- While fully vaccinated travellers will be automatically exempt, those who are not double-dosed will be required to undergo stay-at-home orders until 14 days after leaving the high-risk area.
