Tuesday, 17 November 2020

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.
