Jervis Bay will remain in a state of emergency until March 14, after the Assistant Minister for Regional Development and Territories, the Honourable Nola Marino MP, made an extension.
The territory has been in a state of emergency as part of the ongoing response to the COVIS-19 pandemic.
Ms Marino has extended it for a 30-day period from February 11.
"By doing this, the Jervis Bay Territory (JBT) community will continue to be protected and supported during this time, with the health and wellbeing of the community the first priority," a spokesperson said.
As at February 15 there were no known cases of COVID-19 in the JBT.
The State of Emergency declaration in the JBT under the Jervis Bay Territory Emergency Management Ordinance 2015 provides powers to key members of the JBT Emergency Management Committee, and Emergency Services supporting the JBT, to deal with public health risks associated with COVID-19.
JBT residents should continue to follow Australian Government and state and territory government advice, including on travel restrictions, health, hygiene, physical distancing and self-isolation.
