Coronavirus (COVID-19) - Its impact

COVID-19 has had a global effect on countries, economies, travel, businesses and individuals alike. Australia’s response has been to implement a number of measures to help the economy, institutions and its people.

Large Gatherings are banned
There is a restriction on people gathering. Exemption applies to schools, universities, airports, public transport, medical and emergency services facilities, aged care homes, jails, courts, parliaments, supermarkets.
Social distance is our biggest weapon
Keep at 1.5 metres apart. If working, ensure that you are in a 4 sq. metre space. No more handshakes. No more hugs . Wash hands regularly and use hand sanitizer.
Aged Care Restrictions
Anyone who has been overseas or in contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19 within a fortnight will be banned from visiting aged care homes. Aged care residents will only be able to have two visitors at a time. No school groups will be allowed to visit.
Travel ban of foreigners to Australia from 9pm Friday, 20 Mar 2020.
Level 4 restrictions on Australians to not travel overseas and Australians currently travelling overseas urged to return and upon entry will be placed in forced quarantine. This advice will remain in place indefinitely.
Stop Panic Buying. Restrictions in place for medication.
Government's advice is for people to have a few days' worth of supplies and return to regular shopping habits to give supermarkets a chance to restock their shelves.
Closure of social spaces
From midday, Monday 23 Mar 2020, the closure of registered nightclubs, pubs, licensed areas within hotels, gyms, casinos, indoor sporting facilities, places of worship, auction and open houses, cinemas, personal services (beauty therapy, tanning, massage and tattoo services), galleries, museums, libraries, swimming pools, public playgrounds, skate parks, cafes and restaurants (exclusion for takeaway and home delivery catering)
Economic Stimulus Package
On 12 March 2020, a $17.6 billion economic plan was issued to keep Australians in jobs, keep businesses in business and support households and the Australian economy as the world deals with the significant challenges posed by the spread of the coronavirus.
