Good afternoon Canberra.
The ACT has recorded another 13 new cases of COVID-19 in the last reporting period.
It was announced today that Canberra's lockdown will be extended until at least September 17, albeit with a few important changes.
Unfortunately for parents, a relaxation of some rules won't be accompanied by a return to face-to-face learning this term.
Concerningly, there was another school added to the ACT exposure site list on Monday afternoon.
My name is Alex Crowe, I'll be posting here this afternoon and this evening.
