Canberrans could be allowed more freedoms sooner than planned after the ACT's vaccination rate crossed 95 per cent on Sunday.
Chief Minister Andrew Barr's emergency cabinet will meet on Monday afternoon to consider advice on bringing forward the date to further ease restrictions, which had been slated for November 26.
Limits on household and outdoor gatherings would be scrapped and capacity restrictions at hospitality venues further eased, under the next stage of Canberra's road out of lockdown.
Monday's cabinet meeting, which will include a briefing from Chief Health Office Kerryn Coleman, will be held after the ACT's vaccination rate for people aged over 12 reached 95 per cent over the weekend.
Mr Barr on Sunday morning said he expected the ACT's double-dose rate would rise to 99 per cent later this month.
"This is another important milestone on our pathway towards a fully vaccinated population," he said.
Mr Barr and his ministers will be mulling whether to fast-track freedoms after the list of Canberra schools exposed to positive cases of COVID-19 grew to nine.
Melrose High School, Orana Steiner School, Namadgi High School, Holy Family School and Erindale College have all been exposed to positive cases, ACT Health advised on Sunday morning.
At least 31 cases are known to be linked to Wanniassa School, while Ainslie, Gordon and St Anthony's Parish Primary are also connected to infections.
The ACT recorded 13 new cases up to 8pm on Saturday night.
It's not yet clear how many of the new cases are linked to the schools.
