A remade Public Health Order easing a number of restrictions came into effect today, subject to strict social distancing rules. From today, the new rules keeping the State COVIDSafe mean:
The number of people allowed inside indoor venues will be determined by the ‘one person per 4 square metre’ rule, with no upper limit. This includes function centres. All activity must be seated only.
Cultural and sporting events at outdoor venues with a maximum capacity of 40,000 will be allowed up to 25 percent of their normal capacity. Events must be ticketed and seated and follow strict guidelines.
On compassionate grounds, restrictions on funerals will immediately be eased to allow the four-square-metre rule to apply.
All other restrictions including 20 guests inside the home and 20 for outside gatherings remain the same.
The four-square-metre rule must be applied at all times, along with completion of COVIDSafe plans. More information on what is permissible can also be found here.
