- ACT Chief Minister Andrew Barr confirmed nine Canberrans were now in hospital with Covid-19, including two people in intensive care.
- But the Chief Minister made it clear that this did not mean Canberra’s public health directions were set to change anytime soon.
- ”Mr Barr also rejected any suggestion that he would follow in NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian’s footsteps by introducing special freedoms and privileges for those who were fully vaccinated.
- The Chief Minister said that because of this, it was pointless to develop, implement and enforce a vaccination privileges program which would only be necessary for five days.
