NT Government road map to the new normal
|The NT Government has announced today the three stages in which NT COVID-19 restrictions will be lifted, starting tomorrow:
STAGE 1 | Effective noon Friday 1 May
STAGE 2 | Effective noon Friday 15 May
The following will be permitted for less than 2 hours:
STAGE 3 | Effective noon Friday 5 June
All NT businesses, services, facilities and organisations should have their own COVID-19 Safety Plan
The 2-hour time limit on Stage 2 activities will be REMOVED.
Restrictions will be eased on further indoor activities, including on team sports such as football, basketball, soccer and netball; TABs, and all licensed gaming venues; any cinema or theatre, concert hall, music hall, dance hall, nightclub or any other similar entertainment venue in approved configuration; previously restricted services at a place that provides beauty therapy, and/or cosmetic services including facial care.
All businesses, facilities and services previously restricted can now resume ensuring adherence to key principles.
Chief Minister Gunner stated that the NT’s border restrictions will be the last measure lifted. The current INTERNAL border controls under the Commonwealth Bio-security Act are due to expire on the 18 June. The decision on whether to lift those controls will be made in partnership with the Federal Government, Land Councils and communities – and based on the health advice.
Because the Territory is the safest place in the nation, we can be the first in the nation to adjust restrictions in a staged and steady process, while still keeping Territorians safe.
