The ACT has recorded 500 new cases of COVID-19, as the territory government extended low-level COVID-19 restrictions for a further two weeks.

Of the 500 new cases of COVID-19, 289 came from PCR tests while there were 211 positive rapid antigen test results recorded.
There are three fewer patients with COVID-19 being treated in hospital, down from 54 to 51 in the past day.

ACT chief health officer Dr Kerryn Coleman said the extension was necessary due to the ongoing COVID-19 risk in Canberra

The number of patients in intensive care has also fallen from four to three.

Almost three-in-four children aged five to 11-years-old have received their first vaccine dose, with the rate now standing at 74.9 per cent, while there are now 58.1 per cent of those over 16 who have received their booster dose.
It comes as the ACT government extended its public health emergency declaration for a further 90 days.
ACT chief health officer Dr Kerryn Coleman said the extension was necessary due to the ongoing COVID-19 risk in Canberra.
‘This extension also means we can be prepared in the event of a new or re-emerging strain of the virus as we head towards winter and cold and flu season,’ she said.

‘We are cautiously optimistic about the current COVID-19 situation in the ACT.’
The declaration will remain in place until at least May 13.
Meanwhile, low-level restrictions requiring patrons at hospitality venues to be seated while eating and drinking have been extended until February 25.
Dancing will also be banned at hospitality venues is also not allowed.

‘Canberrans are also being asked to continue to work from home, where this is appropriate for them and their employer, for the remainder of February,’ Dr Coleman said.
‘A further review of pubic health social measures will be considered over the coming weeks.’
