An update has been made to public activity restrictions in South Australia.
The Emergency Management (Public Activities No 2) (COVID-19) Direction 2020 has been revoked and replaced by the Emergency Management (Public Activities No 3) (COVID-19) Direction 2020. This new Direction comes into effect as of Monday at 0001hrs on 29 June 2020.
The Direction requires all defined public activities to comply with:
The Direction requires those persons who conduct defined public activities to complete or update a COVID Safe Plan or COVID Management Plan before undertaking the activities.
Most businesses/activities allowed to re-open/re-commence under Step 3 from Monday 29 June do not require a COVID Management Plan. Instead, they require a COVID Safe Plan (as per Step 2 and Step 2 Plus).
The exceptions are defined public activities of more than 1,000 persons, ‘Relevant licensed premises’ and places with both dancing and consumption of alcohol, which will require a COVID Management Plan to be approved by SA Health.
Changes of note to defined public activities and special compliance rules include:
It should be noted that contract tracing records are still required for defined businesses or activities including: personal care services; auctions and inspections; recreational transport; driver instruction; indoor sport comprised of a fitness class indoor public meetings; weddings; funerals; religious or faith based ceremonies; casino's and gaming areas.
It is acknowledged that many restrictions still apply, but they are critical in dealing with the spread of COVID-19.
