Any non-residents who have been in any areas of NSW outside the Shoalhaven LGA will not be able to enter the JBT.

All JBT residents must continue to follow the Emergency Public Health Directions which are now in place for the JBT, with residents reminded of the importance of keeping up-to-date with current restrictions, practising physical distancing and good hand hygiene, staying home if unwell and getting tested if you have COVID symptoms.
