As of Tuesday 17 November, the Government of South Australia has issued new advice to individuals and businesses in order to reduce social contact and better manage the recent outbreak of COVID-19.
The newly introduced measures have an expected duration of two weeks, and specify that:
- Gyms, recreation centres, community sport and training, trampoline and play cafes must close.
- Pubs, clubs and restaurants are capped at 100 patrons (and a cap of 50 people at private gatherings in licensed venues), with the 1 person per 4sqm rule re-introduced. Venues can only take bookings for groups of up to 10 people, and no standing consumption is allowed.
- Events with a COVID-Management Plan scheduled to take place over the next two weeks have been cancelled. There are also new restrictions imposed on funerals, weddings and religious ceremonies.
- Wearing a mask is now mandatory for personal care workers, including nail technicians, beauticians, hairdressers and tattoo artists.
- Entertainment centres (including cinemas and theatres) must re-introduce the 1 person per 4sqm rule.
Aged care facilities are also implementing stricter visitation and mask-wearing rules to keep residents safe.
