18 May 2022

On the 28 January 2022, it was announced that a third dose of a COVID-19 vaccine (booster shot) would be mandatory for all workers by 22 April 2022.
Relevant workers who have not had their booster shot by 22 April 2022 will not be permitted to attend their workplace.

Workers who are required to get the COVID-19 vaccine are:

  • Workers who come into direct contact with people who are at risk of severe illness from COVID, including Aboriginal people and people who cannot be vaccinated due to age or a medical condition.
  • Workers who are at an increased risk of contracting COVID-19 because they work in a high-risk setting where there is a known risk of COVID-19 transmission or outbreak.
  • Workers who perform work in essential infrastructure, food or essential good security or supply, or logistics in the Territory.

Workplaces must update their register of vaccination status for all workers to include Workers' booster shot details.

With the NT 2022 Season starting on 1 June, SLSNT has prepared this Circular to clarify how this mandate affects their volunteers and what needs to be done to get on the beach this season.
