Canberra has recorded 19 new coronavirus infections, a dozen of which can be linked to other cases or ongoing clusters.

Just four of Friday's cases spent their entire infectious period in quarantine, with at least 13 in the community for some of the time.

There are 12 people in hospital, including three in intensive care. Two patients require ventilation.

Nearly 57.5 per cent of the ACT's eligible population is fully immunised.

More than 83 per cent have had one dose.
