The NT has experienced several short, sharp lockdowns due to COVID-19 positive individuals being in the community.
Once the community is 80% vaccinated, more people from interstate may come to the NT and the virus may be spread more in the NT. In this scenario, lockdowns may include lock-outs.
Basically, vaccinated people will be able to continue their normal lives while wearing masks, while unvaccinated people will basically be locked down – they will only be able to leave home for the following 5 reasons.
- Medical treatment
- Essential goods and services
- Essential work
- One hour of outdoor exercise within 5km of home with your household or one other person
- Caring duties
