Groote Police Front Counter notices - unofficial COVID-19 update

COVID UPDATE - DARWIN IN LOCKDOWN UNTIL 1PM FRIDAY.

Please let everyone know that if you go to Darwin you will not be allowed to return to Groote Eylandt, Bickerton Island, Numbulwar, or other remote townships, until after 1pm on Friday.

THIS LOCKDOWN COULD BE EXTENDED AGAIN.

If any of us travel to Darwin, we could be unable to come home when we want to.

Also, if things change again you might need to go into 14 days of quarantine before coming home, and this can cost you a lot of money.

There are people in Darwin who have COVID and are in quarantine or isolation.

We DO NOT have any COVID in remote areas, and we are working very hard to keep it that way.

PLEASE DO NOT TRAVEL TO DARWIN UNTIL WE KNOW IT IS SAFE AGAIN.

We will send out more information to you as soon as we have updates.
