New public activity restrictions in South Australia.
As of Wednesday 29 July 2020, numbers of attendees at weddings and funerals will be capped in line with a new Emergency Management Direction. South Australian residents will also no longer be able to return to SA from Victoria.
The Emergency Management (Public Activities No 4) (COVID-19) Direction 2020 has been revoked and replaced by the Emergency Management (Public Activities No 5) (COVID-19) Direction 2020. This new Direction comes into effect as of 0001hrs Wednesday 29 July 2020.
Changes of note to defined public activities include several new maximum capacity requirements and updates for the requirement of a COVID Management Plan.
Summary of changes:
- Gatherings of more than 50 people at a residential premise are now defined as a prohibited gathering. A person must not allow, organise or attend a prohibited gathering at a residential premise.
- Weddings including ceremonies and receptions are only permitted where the number of people attending does not exceed 100 and contract tracing is conducted, regardless of the venue (max 50 at residential premises).
- Funerals including a wake are only permitted where the number of people attending does not exceed 100 and contract tracing is conducted, regardless of the venue (max 50 at residential premises).
Victorian Border Restrictions
From 00:01am, Wednesday 29 July 2020, South Australian residents will no longer be able to return to SA from Victoria.
Only approved essential travellers and those granted an exemption on compassionate grounds will be allowed to enter from Victoria.
It is acknowledged how broad these restrictions are, but they are critical in dealing with the spread of COVID-19.
