Easing of coronavirus (COVID-19) restrictions
Australia's federal, state and territory governments are gradually easing restrictions around public gatherings, how businesses can operate, and regional travel. Find out more about the National Cabinet's 3-step plan to create a COVIDSafe Australia with new ways of living and working.
Australia has been highly successful in ‘flattening the curve’. The number of new COVID-19 cases in Australia each day is very low. We can now begin to take careful steps to ease some of the restrictions that have helped us suppress the spread of this virus.
From the beginning there have been differences in how COVID-19 has spread in different parts of the country. National Cabinet has agreed a 3-step plan to gradually remove baseline restrictions between now and July. The plan is based on the expert advice of the Australian Health Protection Principal Committee (AHPPC) on how to establish COVIDSafe ways of working and living.
Under this plan, each state and territory government will decide which restrictions can be eased when, taking into account their local circumstances, meaning states and territories may move at different speeds. Find out more about the restrictions in your state or territory.
