The Northern Territory Government has confirmed stay-at-home orders in Katherine lifted from midday (ACST) today, one day after a lockdown in Darwin ended.
It comes as the Territory reported no new cases of COVID-19 today, giving authorities the confidence to lift remaining lockdown restrictions.
Some restrictions for Darwin and Katherine will remain in place until 12pm on 26 August for high-risk categories to reduce the risk of COVID-19 spreading in the community.
People will still need to wear masks in indoor settings such as retail, but they can be taken off while seated and eating or drinking, and will not be necessary in offices when physical distancing can be maintained.
