ACT Policing COVID19 community compliance update

COVID-19

ACT Policing conducted 699 COVID-19 compliance checks on individuals over the past seven days.

Detective Superintendent Mick Calatzis, from the ACT Policing COVID-19 Taskforce, was pleased with the continuing high compliance levels with COVID-19 public health directions in the ACT.

“The level of COVID-19 compliance we have seen in Canberra is remarkable, and it’s a credit to everyone in quarantine,” Detective Superintendent Calatzis said.

ACT Policing has conducted 5087 compliance checks as of Monday, 7 September 2020.

ACT Policing will continue to work with the ACT Government and health authorities to help maintain the ACT’s good COVID-19 record, with no local cases recorded in the ACT since mid-July.

“While the ACT has only recorded a relatively small number of cases during the COVID-19 pandemic, there is still no room for complacency. The community’s behaviour shows this message is understood in Canberra,” Detective Superintendent Calatzis said.

“I appreciate that spring has arrived, and with warmer weather, it may be harder for people to stay indoors, but I urge anyone in quarantine to remember it is only a temporary situation for them.”
