​An exemption has been made to the public health order tonight to make life easier for NSW residents who enter the ACT for work or medical care.

NSW residents who have been in the ACT for work, to receive medical care, or to accompany someone receiving treatment will now no longer have to complete a declaration or follow stay at home rules after they return to NSW.

Everyone else entering NSW after being in the ACT will need to complete a declaration and follow the stay at home rules.

We urge people throughout NSW to continue to come forward for testing at the first sign of even mild symptoms. To find your nearest clinic visit COVID-19 clinics or contact your GP.

High vaccination rates are also essential to reduce the risk of transmission and protect the health and safety of the community.

Use the COVID-19 vaccine clinic finder to find your nearest vaccination clinic, or visit the NSW Government website
