The ACT has now been in lockdown for two weeks and it was confirmed yesterday it will not be ending early.
Canberra recorded 14 new cases of COVID-19 to 8pm Wednesday. All of the new cases are linked and only one was infectious in the community, "for a very short period of time".
There are nine people hospitalised with COVID-19 and an unvaccinated woman in her 40s remains in a critical condition in intensive care.
Mr Barr said "spring is going to be difficult" in the ACT and across the country. The chief health officer will brief government on possible changes to health measures on Thursday afternoon, which will be announced Friday.
The Morrison government has said details on child vaccinations are coming within days.
Meanwhile, the World Health Organisation has reported the number of new coronavirus cases reported globally appears to be stabilising.
