New requirements for indoor gatherings

Council is committed to working with businesses, community groups and individuals to ensure adherence to new social distancing and hygiene requirements for indoor gatherings to help stop the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).

As of today there is a requirement of 4 square metres of floor space for every person at an indoor gathering and a requirement for hand sanitiser, bins, and waste disposal taking place.

It means that if we had a 100 square metre space only 25 people could occupy it at any one time, keeping a distance of 1.5m away from each other.

This includes venues such as community halls, libraries, galleries, restaurants, cafes, pubs and clubs.

The 4 square metre and hygiene measures were announced by the Australian Government for outdoor events last week by the Australian Government.
