Outdoor and indoor Christmas gathering restrictions released

Shared utensils are okay, but socialising with strangers is still out.

To reduce the possibility of a Sydney-sized cluster over the festive period, SA Police have released a list of up to date COVID-19 restrictions for those planning to party at the beach or any public park.

They are as follows:

  • Within any organised group, the limit on numbers is 200
  • A 1 person per 2 square meter rule still applies
  • Shared utensils and shared food platters are okay, but only within your group
  • You can stand up to drink and eat (remember to adhere to dry zones prior to your event)
  • Keep your distance from groups of people that you do not know

The police strongly recommend that you plan ahead, reserve your place early and be sun safe at all times.

2020 has been an unusual year, to say the least, so please enjoy the festive season but remember to be COVID-19 safe at all times in order to reduce the possibility of infection within the community.

For more information about all current community guidelines and restrictions you can call the SA COVID-19 Information Line on 1800 253 787 between 9am to 5pm 7 days per week, or visit the SA Health website or For frequently asked questions and all existing directions, you can also check out
