- No matter how long it's been since we had a local COVID-19 case in Canberra, you should still assume any cold or flu type symptoms are COVID-19 until proven otherwise. If you do develop any of these symptoms you need to stay home from work, get tested and remain self-isolated until you receive a negative test result.
