Australians banned from travelling overseas in latest coronavirus crackdown

Registered and licensed clubs, licensed premises in hotels and pubs, casinos and night clubs.

It appears that there's still contention over how schools will operate, but multiple activities including real estate open houses and auctions, health clubs and classes and beauty services will be banned from operating.

Personal services such as beauty therapy and tattoo parlours (but not physiotherapy) are banned.

Outdoor and indoor markets (excluding food markets, which are classed as an essential service) will be addressed by states and territories under their own legislation.

Swimming pools, amusement arcades, museums, and community centres are also to be closed.

Gyms and indoor sport venues.

With a few exceptions such as aid workers and compassionate cases, Australians would be banned from foreign travel.

Boot camps and personal training must be limited to 10 people and enforce social distancing.

Restaurants and cafes can offer delivery and takeaway only.

Australia will close food outlets at shopping centres, place limits on weddings and funerals and ban overseas travel, the government said on Tuesday (March 24), after a jump in the number of coronavirus infections.

Finally, weddings will be restricted to 8 people (the couple, a celebrant, and no more than five witnesses), whilst funerals will be restricted to ten people.

Trials for coronavirus vaccine could start next month in the UK
The drugs will be tested to see if they are safe and effective when added to the usual standard of care. The trials use an adaptive design, which means it can test new treatments as they become available.

The States and Territories will consider their own measures to ban house parties, but the Prime Minister has urged people to keep visitor numbers to their homes to a minimum. States may choose to legislate to restrict house parties.

He was later forced to clarify his announcement, explaining only food courts "in" shopping centres would be closing.

Schools will reopen after the term break with a mix of distance learning and in-school learning for all "essential workers".

There are differences in how each state and territory is managing schools.

"But importantly, for those parents who have jobs, who need to send their children to school for their learning, because they can't stay at home with them, because they need to be at work, these are nurses, they're doctors, they're people who are working at Centrelink, people doing very important jobs".

Mr Morrison remains firm that schools are safe and that it's necessary for them to remain open, but it's clear that negotiations between stakeholders are continuing.

It has been NSW and Victoria which have been the most forward-leaning on issues, notably schools. Due to return on 13 April. Be very careful. Because that would need to be sustained for a very long time. No child will be turned away.

NT: Schools to remain open but optional for parents to send children. Social distancing is vital, but we can still get a haircut so long as it takes less than 30 minutes?

Hairdressers and barbershops will remain open for business provided they adhere to social distancing guidelines and limit the number of people on their premises, with customers spending no more than half-an-hour getting their hair done.

"It is important for people to go to the shop". For any of us, we could catch it and take up to 14 days to show symptoms (or not show any symptoms at all) and in that time, if we are not practising social distancing, could be spreading it to the more vulnerable.
