The Northern Territory is officially clinically COVID-free after recording no new cases in more than 28 days.

The Territory has now said it could begin relaxing some rules for interstate travellers.

Chief Minister Michael Gunner said the Territory would remain vigilant against COVID-19.

“Our hard border controls are still there and will stay there for a long time. We have cops on borders and in airports, forced quarantine for hot spots, and tough consequences for rule-breakers,” the NT News reported him as saying.

“We will keep doing whatever it takes to stay the safest place in Australia.”

The news comes hot on the heels of the announcement that the Territory’s hotspot on the Greater Sydney region would be lifted in early October provided case numbers continued to fall.
