More than 200 Victorian residents have been granted exemptions to enter the ACT.
Anyone from Victoria wanting to enter the territory has been required to apply for an exemption from ACT Health since June 8, as the state struggles to contain a surge in virus cases.
Among the exemptions granted so far are two for federal politicians who are based in Melbourne.
They will have to agree to follow strict rules while in the ACT, and are expected to attend only their office and appropriate accommodation.
It's understood they will not attend public places like restaurants and will have to keep a log of everyone they interact with.
The politicians will also be expected to wear a mask while in the car travelling to the office and will not be able to stay in shared accommodation.
Those given an exemption so far have been allowed to bring one staffer.
Melbourne-based minister Alan Tudge was in Canberra last week, while Treasurer Josh Frydenberg - also from Melbourne - will need to be in Canberra for the mini-budget next week.
ACT Health has so far received about 350 exemption requests from Victorians wanting to enter the territory.
Of those, about 210 have been granted.
The exemptions are for essential workers, compassionate reasons, day visits for essential business, and transit and freight.
The breakdown of those who were required to self-isolate for 14 days on arrival, and those who were not, was not available.
About 400 ACT residents in Victoria have notified the government they are returning to territory.
It came as the territory recorded a sixth day in a row without a new case.
There are now 34 cases linked to Casula's Crossroads Hotel which has prompted the ACT government to enforce self-quarantine for anyone who has returned from specific locations in south-west Sydney.
From noon Thursday, anyone who has been in the affected locations will be legally required to quarantine for 14 days from the date they were there, even if they do not have symptoms.
The locations are:
- Crossroads Hotel in Casula - from Friday, July 3 to Friday, July 10.
- Planet Fitness in Casula - from Saturday, July 4 to Friday July 10.
- Picton Hotel in Picton - on Saturday, July 4, Sunday, July 5, Thursday, July 9 or Friday July 10.
ACT residents have also been urged not to travel to the Sydney areas of Liverpool and Campbelltown, however, the advice is not legally enforceable.
Some Canberra businesses have taken that advice a step further, telling patrons to stay away if they've been in south-western Sydney over the past two weeks.
ACT Health Minister Rachel Stephen-Smith said it was a decision for individual businesses to take that "extremely precautionary approach".
"I don't know that banning people from entering businesses who've been in Sydney is going to be particularly helpful," she said.
"I would encourage businesses to implement their COVID safety plan and for those businesses where people stay for a period of time like restaurants and cafes, obviously keeping the name and contact number of everyone who attends those businesses is really important."
Ms Stephen-Smith said it was a precautionary measure as there was not evidence of community transmission in those areas yet.
