With South Australia recording another day of zero new cases of COVID-19, the state’s health authorities have moved to lift a range of restrictions brought in to combat the Parafield cluster.

Premier Steven Marshall announced a range of restrictions that will now be lifted on next Monday, making way for a more normal holiday season.

Restrictions being lifted from Monday 14 December include:

  • Lifting the limit on gatherings at private residences from 10 to 50 people
  • Limits on private gatherings raised to 200 people (including weddings and funerals)
  • Gyms to be permitted to increase their density to one person per two square metres
  • Stand-up drinking to once again be permitted at hospitality venues
  • Lifting of aged care restrictions brought in to combat the spread of the Parafield cluster
  • Theatres to be permitted to welcome 75% of capacity back into venues

The government will also cease their messaging for people to work from home wherever possible, with advice on mask wearing also easing.
