Health Authorities have identified two possible COVID-19 exposure sites in Canberra after a man from Sydney who tested positive to the virus visited earlier this week.

The individual is a man in his 40s from Sydney’s north-western suburbs, whose test results showed low virus levels which NSW Health has not been able to rule out as a possible case of COVID-19.

If you were at any of the following locations at the times listed, you must immediately isolate until further advised by ACT Health, get a COVID-19 test, and fill in the declaration form on the ACT COVID-19 website.

  • National Gallery – Monday 14 June 12pm-1:45pm
  • Via Dolce Pasticcera, Civic – Monday 14 June 2:45pm-3:115pm

In addition, if you were at the National Gallery of Australia, including the main gift shop, from 12-2pm on Monday 14 June, you must be vigilant for even the mildest of COVID-19 symptoms, immediately get tested and isolate until a negative test is received.

Contract tracing is now underway, with ACT Health using Check-In CBR data to identify people who were at the affected venues.

Extra staff are also being rostered on at the ACT’s testing clinic on Friday to handle an anticipated increase in demand.


The ACT Government is expected to provide an update later on Friday morning.
