From 3:00pm today, approximately 75 people currently in quarantine in the ACT after travelling to the northern beaches can end their isolation.
“Today the Northern Beaches local Government area will be removed from the list,” ACT Chief Minister Andrew Barr said.
“This reflects the improved situation in the local government area.”
