NEW TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS FOR REMOTE AREAS

NEW TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS FOR REMOTE AREAS

 
From 11.59pm tonight, anyone wanting to access remote indigenous communities will need to self-isolate for 14 days before they can enter.

The areas where restrictions apply will be communicated by the State and Territory Governments prior to commencement.
Governments will support people who do not have appropriate alternate arrangements to self-isolate.

There will be exemptions to the travel restrictions for people entering to supply and deliver essential services.
People already in remote communities should stay there unless it is essential to leave for medical treatment.

Communities affected by this announcement include Wujal Wujal and Cape York to Torres Strait, Doomadgee, Woorabinda and Cherbourg.

More information is being posted on www.niaa.gov.au and www.indigenous.gov.au

If you intend to travel to those areas, you will need a permit which is available here Travel in Cook Shire Entry Permit Application – March 2020.v9
