Some important new restrictions tonight as we step up our fight against the coronavirus.
From midday tomorrow all licensed pubs and clubs will be forced to close and all cafes and restaurants will be able to offer takeaway only.
Schools will remain open until the end of this term but those parents who wish to remove their kids from school earlier will be able to do so. The expert medical advice remains that schools should remain open.
Social distancing – staying 1.5m away from each other – is our best weapon against this virus. Every Australian is being asked to do their part, to help save lives and protect livelihoods.
