Canberrans who have visited COVID-19 exposure sites in Melbourne are urged to get tested and quarantine as new restrictions are in place for non-ACT residents after four new cases in Victoria were identified.
ACT Health issued advice to Canberra residents who have been to COVID-19 sites in Melbourne that they should get tested and quarantine.
Any non-ACT residents who have attended a close contact exposure site will not be allowed into the territory without an approved exemption.
The new advice from ACT Health came just a day after it formally lifted all travel requirements with greater Melbourne.
The four cases confirmed in Melbourne's north on Monday are family contacts.
Victorian Health Minister Martin Foley said one infected person got tested on Sunday for symptoms and it is believed he had them for three days prior.
"He was joined at the testing centre by case number two, a male relative who was asymptomatic," Mr Foley said.
ACT Health said anyone in the ACT who had been in greater Melbourne should check the identified COVID-19 exposure sites.
If they have attended a location they should get tested for coronavirus and quarantine for 14 days from the date they were last there, regardless of a negative test result.
"This is an evolving situation and the ACT Public Health (COVID-19 Areas of Concern) Notice 2021 is regularly updated on the ACT COVID-19 website as new COVID-19 exposure sites are identified," ACT Health said in a statement.
"Please continue checking to see if you have been to a newly identified COVID-19 exposure site.
"This is a timely reminder to remain vigilant for COVID-19. If you have any COVID-19 symptoms, even if mild, please get tested and stay at home until you have a negative result and your symptoms have resolved.
"If you are travelling please remember that things can change quickly. Regularly check the public health advice of the place you are visiting, follow regular COVID-safe practices and check in at venues to support contract tracing."
