On Friday, the South Australian government outlined South Australia’s roadmap for easing COVID-19 restrictions.
Step 1 for easing COVID-19 restrictions in South Australia begins today, with the following changes coming into effect:
- Regional travel is permitted. Getting back travelling within the state will be a great way to support regional communities.
- Universities and TAFEs are able to recommence face-to-face tutorials.
- Cafes and restaurants are able to offer outdoor dining for up to 10 patrons at a time.
- The restriction on gatherings at community, youth and RSL halls have eased. Gatherings of up to 10 people are permitted.
- Auctions and home inspections are able to recommence, with a maximum of 10 participants at a time.
- Council libraries are clear to reopen allowing a maximum of 10 patrons at a time.
- Sporting clubs are able to recommence some outdoor training in groups of no more than 10, with contact between team-mates still discouraged.
- The limit on funeral attendees is lifted to 20 attendees for indoor services and 30 for outdoors.
- Wedding are able to have up to 10 guests (not counting the celebrant and staff).
- Churches are able to reopen but no more than 10 people can attend at once.
- Swimming pools are able to reopen, allowing one lap swimmer per lane, and no more than 10 swimmers at once.
- Campgrounds and caravan parks are able to go back to normal operations but gatherings should be limited to a maximum of 10 people.
For all the above items, social distancing measures should still be taken. People should keep at least 1.5 m apart and, when indoors, allow four square metres per person.
