10th November: Darwin LOCKOUT ended but mask rules continue

Notice text: 

The lockout for Darwin ended midnight on 9th November 2021. However a mask mandate remains in place until 5pm Friday, 12 November 2021 for both Katherine and Greater Darwin. These are the current rules:

  • Face masks must be worn when you are unable to physically distance – at places like supermarkets, shops, hairdressers and on public transport. Workers who come into close contact with patrons, or who work in crowded environments will need to wear a mask.
  • The Territory Check-In App is mandatory for business, organisations and places. Customers and visitors must check-in every time, no matter how long they are there for.
  • You need to wear a mask when going to a café or restaurant but you can remove it when seated and eating and drinking. Patrons are required to wear a mask when at the bar. Dance floors are open but you must wear a mask.
