Regrettably Andrew is no longer able to attend mobile office dates on 7, 10 and 15 December as he will have been in Canberra for Parliament. Although Andrew is deemed to be an Essential Traveller and exempt from quarantine, he is required to minimise his physical contact with the community and judges that it would be unwise to attend his mobile office on those dates.
