The Parliament closed the door after political staff signed with Covid, isolating the leader of one party.
The Capitol closed the open house after the staff of Adam Bunt, the leader of the Greens Party, tested positive for Covid-19.
While Mr. Band is waiting for the results of the Covid test, the building is currently not open to the public until further notice.
According to ACT Health, staff returned positive results when they returned from Canberra to their home state of Victoria.
Health officials are currently working to identify possible close contact and exposure locations in the Capitol and elsewhere in Canberra between November 30th and December 2nd.
In a statement, Greens announced that other colleagues on the infected staff had tested negative for the virus.
“The fully vaccinated staff of Adam Bant’s team in Canberra last week said today. [Saturday] Tested positive for Covid. “
“They are currently working with ACT Health to determine if they have been infected while in Canberra.
“The other members of the team have been tested and returned negative results.
Greens senator Nick McKim has also been tested and received negative results, but he remains quarantined with caution.
Last week, politicians, staff, and others who worked at the Capitol had to wear masks in common areas and use Covid check-in in the app.
The location of the new case will be announced later on Sunday.
