‘Don’t go out partying in the ACT’: Health Minister warns fed pollies


ACT Health Minister Rachel Stephen-Smith has criticized Prime Minister Scott Morrison for not wearing a mask at a press conference in Canberra on Wednesday. He has been in quarantine since he left Sydney under an essential worker exemption. “I have to say that I probably wouldn’t have chosen, if I were the Prime Minister, to hold a press conference without a mask on for so long,” she said. “In this situation, he is the one who is in quarantine, other than from the waivers that have been made.”[But] he has received advice from the Chief Medical Officer, he and his officer are interpreting that advice and that is a matter of his judgment.” MORE COVID-19 NEWS: Ms Stephen-Smith also warned all politicians going to the capital for the term of office of Parliament from August 3 to stay away from the city’s pubs and clubs. “Please don’t go partying in the ACT,” she said. “My message to MPs, Senators and their staff is if you come to the ACT, stay please yourself as much as possible for yourself [and] keep physical distance from people you don’t work with directly in an office.” The ACT has had no active COVID-19 cases in over a year.
