Easter typically means a long weekend spent with family and friends indulging in plenty of chocolate and hot cross buns, but the message from authorities is clear - this year will be very different.
Social distancing measures in response to the coronavirus pandemic have ruled out many favoured family activities.
Chief Minister Andrew Barr said on Tuesday this weekend would be "a different Easter" than what Canberrans are used to and reiterated the importance of continuing social distancing measures.
So what can, and can't, you do this long weekend?
Can I go to the South Coast?
No. The message from South Coast communities, Mr Barr and police is clear, Canberrans should stay at home this Easter.
Mr Barr said the South Coast does not need Canberrans holidaying there as the region doesn't have the health infrastructure to cope with an influx of visitors.
South Coast police will be targeting interstate licence plates as they carry out random tests this weekend in a bid to prevent tourists coming to the area.
Laws passed in NSW last week mean anyone leaving their home without a reasonable excuse faces a maximum $11,000 fine and/or six months in jail, this is extended to ACT residents travelling to NSW without a valid reason.
Can I go to my holiday home?
Canberrans should stay at home this long weekend and not undertake any holiday travel.
If your primary residence is in Canberra, you should stay in Canberra.
You should not be travelling interstate unless it is absolutely essential. Going to stay at your holiday home is not essential.
Can I go out with my family, if we're from the same household?
Outdoor gatherings are limited to two, unless from the same household but the advice is to stay at home unless leaving for an "essential" reason.
The ACT Government has advised if you would like to get your household group out of the house you can take them to the park or somewhere similar for a walk or to otherwise exercise. Staying at home as much as possible and practicing good hygiene is the best way to flatten the curve.
Can I go camping or hiking?
A family weekend camping is also off the cards this year. ACT public camping grounds and popular hiking areas were closed from last Wednesday in keeping with social distancing measures.
Residents have been told to stay at home unless leaving for an essential reason, which includes exercise but should be done close to home.
Perhaps you could up the tent in your backyard this year.
Can my family visit?
The big family brunch will need to hold off this year, however ACT households are allowed up to two visitors at a time and there must be at least four square metres of space for each person in the house.
This means you could have two people over but social distancing measures including a 1.5m distance between each person and good hygiene should be maintained.
Can I go shopping for Easter?
Yes. Supermarkets are open and leaving the house to buy groceries is essential.
Supermarkets have warned they will be busy in the lead up to Easter and stores will be enforcing the four square metre per person rule.
Customers have been advised to shop during less busy periods such as late evening.
Can I go to church?
Many church services across Canberra have been live-streamed since the Federal Government announced the closure of places of worship two weeks ago.
In the lead up to Easter, Mr Morrison said they would be considered workplaces, meaning while places of worship aren't open to the public, the people required to conduct a ceremony can do so.
Holy week masses at St Christopher's Cathedral can be live-streamed via YouTube, find the timetable here.
Can the Easter Bunny make house calls this year?
Chief Medical Officer Brendan Murphy assured the nation on Monday the Easter Bunny, as a sole operator and "essential service" would be able to make house calls this year.
There may be fewer Easter egg hunts then usual but the ACT Government has taken inspiration from New Zealand to create the Big Canberra Easter Egg Hunt.
You can print out the blank egg design, colour it in and stick it in your window so the young and young-at-heart can see it from a safe distance.
