Katherine and Greater Darwin – mask mandate

To keep Territorians safe, a mask mandate will be in place in Katherine and Greater Darwin until 5pm on Friday 12 November 2021. This means, you will be required to wear a mask where you are not able to maintain a physical distance of 1.5m.

  • Travel will be permitted across the Territory but restrictions continue to apply and follow you if you travel outside of the Katherine area.
  • Face masks must be worn when you are unable to physically distance – this includes at places like the supermarket, shops, the hairdresser and on public transport. Workers who come into close contact with patrons, or who work in crowded environments will need to wear a mask.
  • The Territory Check-In App is mandatory for business, organisations and places. Customers and visitors must check-in every time, no matter how long they are there for.
  • You will need to wear a mask when going to a café or restaurant but you can remove it when seated and eating and drinking. Patrons are required to wear a mask when at the bar. Dance floors are open but you must wear a mask.
