COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Impact

In order to reduce the impact of COVID-19, the NT Government is restricting all non-essential travel to Indigenous communities. It’s also recommended that any staff returning from international travel be self-isolated for 14 days away from community.

These measures are put in place to protect vulnerable clients in our region and the broader NT, minimise transmission of COVID-19 and flattening the curve of cases so that our health service and the NT health services won’t become overwhelmed so quickly and we can better prepare for the work to come.

Additional measures may be put in place as the situation develops. There are concerns that the virus’ impact in Indigenous communities may be severe due to a range of other existing health conditions.
