LIVE UPDATES: NSW 'Freedom Day' likely to remain October 11
There are currently 14 people in hospital, with five in intensive care.
The ACT has now recorded 1038 total cases in the current outbreak.
Of those, 949 have recovered, leaving 383 active cases in the territory.
ACT Health Minister Rachel Stephen-Smith said COVID-19 vaccines will be mandatory for frontline healthcare workers, specifically those working in hospitals and healthcare facilities run by Canberra Health Services.
The mandate means healthcare workers will need to have their first dose by October 29 and the second dose by December 1.
The mandate includes staff at hospices, ambulance services and patient transport.
"This will be focused on staff who have the highest risk of coming into contact with COVID-19 positive people," Ms Stephen-Smith said.
Ms Stephen-Smith said talks are currently underway from this morning with the ACT healthcare workforce and key stakeholders to finalise details of the new public health order.
The ACT has now been in lockdown for a total of 54 days.
Chief Health Officer Dr Kerryn Colman has warned case numbers will likely rise when restrictions eventually ease in the territory.
"These cases will become more common, and it will actually become impossible to trace these," Dr Colman said.
Dr Colman said from today, ACT Health will only report cases considered a risk to the community.
There have now been 38 separate clusters since the ACT was forced into lockdown at the end of August.
Ms Stephen-Smith said 94 per cent of the territory have had one dose of the coronavirus vaccine and more than 65 per cent are fully vaccinated.
She reminded anyone who hasn't come forward for vaccination that multiple appointments are available at ACT government-run clinics, medical practices and pharmacies.
