COVID-19 Update | 20 March 2020 (PM Edition)



Today, Prime Minister Scott Morrison introduced measures in addition to the measures published two days earlier.

These measures include:

  • For gatherings (less than 100 people indoor and less than 500 outdoors) there must be no more than one person per four square metres;
  • Hand hygiene products and suitable waste receptacles must be made available in all venues; and
  • Restriction on travel into remote Indigenous communities.

A travel ban on all non-residents and non-citizens came into effect at 9:00 pm on 20 March 2020 and non-essential domestic travel is currently under review.

Despite the new measures, the Prime Minister reiterated that schools will remain open.
