Canberrans have been confused by advice over free/paid tests at government-run COVID-19 testing clinics.
The advice has changed multiple times in the past 48 hours, with Health Minister Rachel Stephen-Smith confirming there will be no charges at ACT government clinics for people who require a COVID PCR test for domestic travel.
However, if a person is required to provide a certificate of a negative result, they will be invoiced for the certificate after the test is undertaken.
New COVID cases are still springing up across the territory with eight new cases recorded on Wednesday amid a jump in testing numbers.
It follows news that COVID vaccine doses are going to waste in Canberra's pharmacies as the booster rollout stalls, and the ACT construction sector did see a bit hit due to COVID-related economic contraction according to the ABS.
Meanwhile, a church and two high schools are among the latest COVID exposure sites in the territory.
