Nhulunbuy Local Coronavirus Outbreak Plan Summary

Summary of the Nhulunbuy district local Coronavirus Outbreak Plan


Currently there is no COVID-19 in East Arnhem Land. But someone might bring the coronavirus into the NT and into East Arnhem Land. We need to be ready to protect ourselves and control the virus if that happens.

The Northern Territory Government, the Land Councils and Aboriginal Medical Services Associated of the NT (AMSANT), working with many local organisations like Miwatj Health, Laynhapuy Health, Rirratjingu, Gumatj and East Arnhem Regional Council, have made two plans about what to do if coronavirus comes to the region. You might hear people talking about the ‘Remote Communities Outbreak Management Plan’ or ‘Local Pandemic Plans’. These are the names of two plans which are connected – we will think of these combined plans as one ‘local coronavirus outbreak plan’.
