Official ACT Government sources are your best sources of up-to-date and accurate information about COVID-19.

21 July 2020

As the pandemic continues, the ACT Government is reminding the community to use official sources for accurate information about COVID-19.

Social media has made it easy for us to connect during this time, but it has provided a channel to spread false information.

There have also been reports of letterbox drops in the ACT with flyers sharing inaccurate and misleading information about testing centres.

To avoid incorrect information, if in doubt, use the ACT COVID-19 website.

Official sources like the ACT Government COVID-19 website, the Our Canberra newsletter, or ACT Government social media channels are your best source of up-to-date and accurate information.

For Australia-wide information, use websites like australia.gov.au or the Australian Government Department of Health website.

If you think you have found false information on a flyer or online, you can contact the COVID-19 Helpline on (02) 6207 to check its accuracy and to report it.

Also be aware that scammers are using COVID-19 to take advantage of people.

For more information about reported scams, or to report a scam yourself, please visit the Scamwatch website.
