Director of Ambulance Services, Andrew Thomas thanks the Northern Territory community for working with authorities to follow the lockdown requirements.

“This situation is subject to rapid change and we are working closely with the Northern Territory Government and emergency services to ensure that we can provide a coordinated and systematic approach to the management of the Territory’s response to COVID-19,” he said.

“We encourage everyone to follow the advice of the Chief Health Officer, stay home unless it is for one of the five reasons, wash your hands, wear a mask when outside and stay safe.”

“We ask that all staff, volunteers, suppliers and clients work with us to address this situation. While there are many uncertainties ahead of us, we need to work together, remain calm and be understanding of our role in providing health care and emergency services to all Territorians,” Mr Thomas said.
