Restrictions to ease in South Australia – hospitality outdoor density & standing consumption

Welcome news this afternoon, with a further easing of restrictions in South Australia – a sign that we’re heading in the right direction as a state, which will inject confidence in the community and in turn, benefit our industry.

From 12.01am on 11 February:

  • Hospitality venues – outdoor density increases to 75 per cent and outdoor standing consumption allowed
  • Home gatherings up from 10 to 50 people
  • Fitness sector moves to 1 person per 4 square metres.

From Monday, 14 February, workplaces will move from 25 per cent to 50 per cent density.

In today's announcement, Premier Steven Marshall said the COVID Ready Committee will continue to look at restrictions and we can expect a further easing to occur in a fortnight.

I look forward to seeing more people in the CBD as offices move to half capacity, and I know the easing for outdoor dining and drinking will be welcome news for many hospitality businesses across our state.

I will continue to keep you updated. For details about COVID-19 restrictions in our state, please refer to covid-19.sa.gov.au.
