The NLC is advising people to postpone funerals to a later date if possible. In addition, no disbursements ("royalty" payments) will be made over the next six weeks.

Disbursements

No disbursements (“royalty” payments) will be made over the next six weeks because of measures taken to contain the COVID 19 virus. These measures include travel restrictions, the Government’s Coronavirus Supplement (to be paid 31 March) and other actions currently being introduced by the NT Government and the Commonwealth. We ask that you be patient and we will keep you advised as new information comes to hand. 

Funerals

The NLC is advising people to postpone funerals to a later date if possible. The Prime Minister Scott Morrison has said that funerals must be limited to no more than 10 people. The NT Government has asked the NLC to advise people to postpone funeral dates. We are still in discussions with NT Government about this and will advise people of the outcome as soon as we know. Again, thank you for your patience over this difficult time.
