Further restrictions in place for non-essential business and social gatherings

25 Mar 2020 9:49pm

In an increased effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19 additional businesses and venues are required to remain closed to the public until further notice.

Acting on the advice of SA Health specialists, the State Coordinator, Commissioner Stevens has made a direction under the Emergency Management, Act 2004.

This direction places further restrictions on non-essential business and social gatherings and is now in force. It replaces an earlier direction made on 23 March 2020, but expands on the list of venues that must be closed.

These new requirements are consistent with the announcement by Prime Minister Morrison following the National Cabinet meeting on 24 March 2020.

The full list is contained in the Direction here

South Australia Police will be conducting proactive random checks on venues and those businesses which have been captured by these newly announced restrictions.

If we cooperate we can flatten the curve and protect those vulnerable within our community.
