Advice on Restrictions and Managing COVID in the Workplace
Australia’s federal, state and territory governments are gradually easing restrictions around public gatherings, how businesses can operate, and regional travel. The pages linked below summarise our understanding of current government responses and do not replace the government’s formally issued advice.
When considering which advice is applicable to you, note that local State/Territory regulations take precedence over Commonwealth instructions.
**Please note that the Australian government responses to Covid-19 are changing regularly and remain the authoritative source for what is and isn’t permitted.
