Western Australia border rules tightened as Northern Territory high at high risk

WA tightened border restrictions with the Northern Territory with just a few hours’ notice.

The Northern Territory will be elevated to a “high risk” jurisdiction starting at 12:01 am Sunday morning, an upgrade to existing “medium risk” rules.

The decision comes after the NT registered 594 cases today.

In the “high risk” settings, anyone entering NT will need to self-quarantine for 14 days, be double-dose vaccinated against COVID-19 (if eligible), and be tested for COVID-19 in 24 hours after arrival and days five and 13.

These rules are tougher than the “medium risk” restrictions and require all people sharing premises with the incoming traveler to also be quarantined for 14 days.
