Non essential services now affected

corona update

The federal and state governments have ordered clubs, pubs, churches and cinemas to close in a bid to limit the spread of the coronavirus.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison and state and territory leaders on Sunday agreed that from noon on Monday there would be new restrictions on a range of indoor venues.

"We now need to take action because we cannot have the confidence as a group of leaders that the social distancing guidelines and rules that we have put in place won't be followed to the level of compliance that we require to flatten the curve and slow the spread and save lives," Mr Morrison said.
