ACT Chief Minister Andrew Barr excepts full vaccine coverage to exceed 95 per cent.

He has expressed frustration at continued non-compliance with mask wearing in businesses allowed to operate under Canberra’s stay-at-home restrictions.

There are 222 active infections in the ACT, with 12 people in hospital including two in intensive care requiring ventilation.
