COVID-19 restrictions are in force for the Northern Territory and are in place until Thursday, 19 August. If you rent in the NT, here’s where to get tenancy support.

Effective from 12.01 PM on Monday, 16 August, Greater Darwin and Katherine will enter a full lockdown for 72 hours.

Residents from affected areas must stay at home for the 72-hour lockdown period, and people are only permitted to leave home for the following five reasons:

  1. Medical treatment, including COVID testing or vaccination
  2. For essential goods and services, like groceries and medications
  3. For work that is considered essential
  4. For one hour of outdoor exercise a day within 5 km from your home with one other person or people from your house
  5. To provide care and support to a family member or person who cannot support themselves.

For everyone in the lockdown area, you must wear masks if you leave your place of residence for one of these five reasons.

For more information on the current restrictions, news updates and FAQs, visit the NT Government website.
