South Australia’s seven-day lockdown is on track to end at 12.01am Wednesday. The news follows just one new case linked to the Modbury cluster – an 87-year-old man who has been in quarantine.
At least another week of severe, state-wide restrictions will follow. They include:
- A density requirement of one person per four square metres in hospitality venues, theatres and other business;
- Seated consumption in bars, pubs, restaurants and cafes – both indoor and outdoor;
- A continued ban on dancing and shisha use;
- Mandatory face masks in high-risk settings, at personal care and healthcare services, on passenger transport and in indoor public places (they're also strongly recommended in shared work spaces and in schools);
- A cap of 10 people for household and private gatherings;
- A cap of 50 people at weddings and funerals, in accordance with density arrangements;
- A density requirement of one person per eight square metres in gyms and fitness centres;
- A continued ban on sports competitions until next weekend, but training can resume.
Those restrictions will be reviewed next week. But Premier Steven Marshall said, in light of the situation in New South Wales, it would be some time before venues can return to 75-per-cent capacity.
