The death toll from coronavirus in the ACT has risen to three, after a woman in her 60s died at Canberra Hospital.
The woman had contracted the virus on board the Ruby Princess cruise ship.
ACT chief health officer Dr Kerryn Coleman offered her condolences to the woman's family and friends.
"My thoughts are with you in this difficult time," she said.
"The very sad reality of this disease is that it is most dangerous for the elderly and the vulnerable, who are at a greatly increased risk of complications."
The ACT has recorded no new cases in the past 24 hours and the number of confirmed cases remains at 103. There has been just one recorded case of coronavirus in Canberra in the past five days.
Of those 103 cases, 77 have recovered from COVID-19, two are in hospital and the remainder are in self-isolation at home.
Almost 6400 negative tests have been carried out.
Despite the drop in the number of new cases seen in the ACT, Dr Coleman said the most recent death served as a stark reminder of the dangers of coronavirus.
"While we have seen a flattening of the curve in Canberra, it is necessary we all continue taking physical distancing seriously to protect vulnerable groups," Dr Coleman said.
"Staying at home as much as possible and practicing excellent hand and respiratory hygiene will help to save lives.
"Only go out when you need to, wash your hands regularly for 20 to 30 seconds each time and cover your mouth when you sneeze or cough.
"These measures give us the best chance to slow the spread of this disease and protect our most vulnerable."
