This Week in the Can

Posted on

Things are changing rapidly in Canberra as we work together to keep our community safe.

For more than nine years we’ve published This Week in The Can—a round-up of events around the ACT. But we are living in extraordinary times.

We encourage you to keep physical distance between each other, as we battle COVID-19 and work together to continue to flatten the curve.


Restrictions may have eased, but your responsibility hasn’t.
