COVID-19: READ MORE
Anyone travelling to the Northern Territory, who has been in Metropolitan Adelaide in South Australia after 12.01am on July 21 and arrives in the Northern Territory will be required to undertake 14 days of mandatory supervised quarantine
However, travellers who have left Metropolitan Adelaide before 12.01am on July 21 are able to enter into the Northern Territory without having to undertake quarantine. This hotspot declaration does not extend back the usual 14 days.
It comes after South Australian Premier Steven Marshall announced the state would go into a seven-day lockdown from 6pm tonight, with four locally acquired Covid-19 cases being recorded.
NT Chief Health Officer Hugh Heggie said: "There are now three states with lockdown restrictions in place as COVID-19 continues to spread across Australia."
"What is important to understand is that the Delta variant has a much higher rate of infectivity and a shortened time for people to become infected with the virus and to infect others.
"I urge everyone who is eligible in the Northern Territory to get the COVID-19 vaccine. Not only will it protect you and your family but it is the only way we can get life back to any sense of normal.''
