Gatherings and work - Northern Territory

Updated on 14 October 2020, at 09:45 AET

There's no limit to how many people can gather indoors or outdoors — but you should keep 1.5 metres from people you don’t live with.

If you need to be closer than 1.5 metres, keep contact to less than 15 minutes at a time. Try to avoid participating in social gatherings for more than 2 hours at a time.

Call 1800 518 055 for more information about requirements for gatherings and events in the NT. The hotline operates Monday to Friday, 8am to 5pm (ACST); and Saturday and Sunday, 9am to 4pm (ACST).
