Government Winds Back Some Coronavirus Restrictions

Thursday, March 26th, 2020

Some COVID-19 restrictions have been wound back, including greater flexibility for hairdressers.

Hairdressers claimed restricting client visits to 30 minutes was counter-productive.

The Prime Minister has released a statement saying that he and state and territory leaders have now scrapped the half-hour rule but still expect salons to practice social distancing and clients to make their visit as short as possible.

There will also more discretion when it comes to funerals with a few extra mourners allowed, over the 10 people limit in exceptional circumstances.

The National Cabinet has agreed to extend testing for coronavirus.

All health, aged, and residential care workers will be tested if they have a fever or respiratory issues.

All hospital patients regardless what they are there for will also get tested if they show the same symptoms.
