I hope everyone has had a restful and peaceful Easter break. I am taking the opportunity to have a short period of annual leave returning on 14 April 2021.

Aaron O’Neill – the Assistant Secretary of the Indian Ocean Territories Branch in the Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Communications – will be acting Administrator of Christmas Island and the Cocos (Keeling) Islands and undertaking my official duties as Administrator.

The IOT COVID-19 subcommittee will continue to monitor and manage our coronavirus response and protect the IOT communities over this period.
