COVID-19 restrictions continue to ease across the country with people in Queensland and Tasmania finally being allowed to dance inside and stand while drinking socially.
In Tasmania, where a family of four international travellers in hotel quarantine have all tested positive for COVID-19, residents will finally be able to dance inside and stand while drinking in bars.
Public Health Director Mark Veitch said the state hadn’t recorded a community transmission for the past four months, leading to confidence in the easing of restrictions.
Meanwhile, from 1am on 14 December Queenslanders will be able dance inside after 86 days without a locally acquired case of COVID-19.
Queensland dancefloors will still have a cap on the number and density of people allowed, Health Minister Yvette D’Ath said they wanted to see dancing spread out.
A limit of one person per two square metres will apply while on the dancefloor.
