Community COVID19 compliance remains a priority for ACT Policing

COVID-19

ACT Policing conducted 777 COVID-19 compliance checks on individuals over the past seven days.

Detective Superintendent Mick Calatzis, from the ACT Policing COVID-19 Taskforce, was pleased that the ACT had once again seen a high level of compliance with COVID-19 directions.

“This is again a terrific result for the ACT. Residents are complying with the health directions and taking their quarantining responsibilities seriously,” Detective Superintendent Calatzis said.

ACT Policing has conducted approximately 4400 compliance checks to date.

Although there has not been a confirmed case of COVID-19 in the ACT for more than a month, ACT Policing continues to work with health authorities and the ACT Government to keep the ACT community safe.

“I would encourage ACT residents to consider contactless ways to wish their elderly relatives a ‘Happy Father’s Day’ this Sunday,” Detective Superintendent Calatzis said.

“Celebrating family is important but please remember the risks close gatherings can pose for certain members of the ACT community, so consider what health precautions you can take when you visit.”
