Prime Minister Scott Morrison has revealed Australia’s three step plan to a COVID-safe country after today’s National Cabinet meeting.

The Prime Minister stated that Australia has been fighting the virus and winning, with economic and health support also now effectively in place.

The three step plan is intended to be carried out by July of this year, with states and territories to move at their own pace based on local conditions.

Step One will not necessarily begin on day one, and moving between the stages will be based on specific criteria.

Necessary factors to move to the next stage include testing, tracing and trapping the virus.

The plan is set to be reviewed in three weeks, and changes may still be made.

Step One:

  • Gatherings five guests in the home permitted (ten in South Australia), gatherings of ten in business and public spaces
  • Work from home if it works for employee and employer
  • Restaurants and cafes open (restrictions applied)
  • Shopping open
  • Library, community centres, playgrounds and boot camps open
  • Local and regional travel
  • 30 guests permitted at funerals
  • 10 guests permitted at weddings

Step Two:

  • Gatherings of 20 permitted in your home, business, and public places
  • Work from home if it works for employee and employer
  • Gyms, beauty, cinemas, galleries, and amusement parks open
  • Caravan and camping grounds open
  • Some interstate travel permitted

Step Three:

  • Gatherings of up to 100 permitted
  • Most workers back in workplace
  • All interstate travel permitted
  • Nightclubs, foodcourts, and saunas to reopen with restrictions
  • Consider Cross-Tasman, pacific island and international students travel

Chief Medical Officer Brendan Murphy stated that testing has ramped up across the country and border measures will not be relaxed as of yet.

All returning travellers will be still be quarantined.

More to come.
