South Australia’s Premier Steven Marshall held a press conference today to discuss this morning’s National Cabinet decisions and the three stage plan on lifting COVID-19 restrictions in SA.
Alongside releasing a roadmap on which restrictions are lifting in SA with a timeline, we now know what these new measures will look like for our cafes and venues.
While measures will be lifted, other existing advice such as hand hygiene, not going out if ill, getting a COVID-19 test, coughing into your arm, and 1.5m rule still remain.
Measures for Cafe Restrictions Lifting
- Recommence seated dining in outdoor areas only – indoor service is still prohibited
- Limit the number of people on site to 1 person per 4 square metres (density requirement)
- Alcohol not to be consumed
- Have a maximum of 10 patrons at any time
- Observe, and encourage observing of, social distancing (1.5 metres rule)
- Minimise use of shared equipment
- Maintain and encourage good hygiene; offer hand sanitiser
- Ensure frequent environmental disinfection cleaning of the premises
- Implement signage/markings to support compliance by staff and patrons
- Review aspects of their business that may increase the risk of transmission; ensure that any period of closure has not caused non-compliance with food safety standards
