Guidelines to reopening safely

Just over two months since the Federal Government shut down the country’s bars, State and Territory leaders are beginning the steady process of allowing venues to reopen.

The Northern Territory is leading the way with on-premise bar and dining services up-and-running but with a two-hour patron limit. That limit is being removed on Friday and bars will also be allowed to operate without food being compulsory.

As of yesterday up to 50 people are allowed in separate areas within venues in NSW, while Queensland increased the number of patrons allowed in venues from 10 to 20.

There are other restrictions and guidelines for reopening in place for the other states and territories, but the over-riding focus is on making sure reopening is done safely and in a way that will not put staff or patrons at risk of infection.

One thing that is consistent is that every government has guidelines and checklists for reopening in place, here’s where you can find out what is relevant in your area.

By being prepared, being safe we can all work to prevent further infections happening and therefore prevent a repeat of the nightmare two months that the industry and you all have experienced.
