Enforceable government directions during coronavirus 

In line with expert health advice about what the community must do to prevent the spread of COVID-19, Australian governments have issued enforceable government directions which set out limits on public gatherings, physical distancing requirements and business restrictions, for each state and territory of Australia.  For example, these directions specify which businesses must currently remain closed (e.g. gyms, pubs, clubs and other services deemed non-essential) and how and when physical distancing requirements apply in workplaces from a public health perspective. Remember, even if these public health directions don’t apply to your workplace, you must still do all you reasonably can to ensure workers stay 1.5 metres apart from one another and with 4 square metres of space, where possible, to meet your work health and safety duties.

As enforceable government directions are being made regularly, we encourage you to regularly check the links on this page for more information.
