Gold Coast City Talks on Strikingly. Australia's strict new coronavirus social distancing rules explained: state by state guidelines. On Sunday night the prime minister announced the tightening of restrictions to try to stop the spread of Covid-19, gatherings are limited to a maximum of two people.
But several states have gone much further while others have opted not to follow the new recommendations. So what are the laws as they currently stand? This article will be updated as new laws are implemented or repealed. Queensland Queensland has announced a state of emergency, and along with enforcing the two-person limit, residents are now only allowed to leave their home for one of eight essential reasons. Queensland also restricts gatherings of more than two people. This means someone can still socialise with the family or roommates they live with, but if there are more than two people in the home, no visitors are allowed. If someone lives alone they are allowed one social guest. There are some exemptions for those who regularly cross the Queensland-NSW border for work.
New South Wales Victoria Tasmania Western Australia. Coronavirus: calls to repatriate 15,000 crew members from cruise ships off Australia's coast. The NSW government may use a military-style operation to test all cruise ship crew members currently off the coast of Sydney and Wollongong in an attempt to end a maritime standoff involving multiple ships which were ordered to leave Australian waters by police.
“You could imagine, you know, dropping doctors, specialists across eight ships, 9,000 people, you know, it’s a big task in itself,” NSW Police Commissioner Mick Fuller said. “Anyone who requires urgent medical attention, we bring off and put into our hospital system.” Fuller said he feared the NSW health system did not have the capacity to bring all 9,000 crew onto land, especially as many of the cruise ships have seen Covid-19 outbreaks. “My fear is, by bringing 9,000 people off the cruise ships into isolation, not knowing if they have the virus or they may develop symptoms, that would absolutely overload our hospital system and everything that we have done to this point would be for nothing.” Is Australia flattening the coronavirus curve? Look at the charts ...
The growth in new coronavirus cases in Australia is slowing but experts say there is still a long way to go in controlling the spread of Covid-19.
On Sunday and Monday, the federal chief medical officer, Prof Brendan Murphy, and the New South Wales chief health officer, Dr Kerry Chant, both expressed qualified optimism about the numbers of new Covid-19 cases being reported over the previous days. The charts showed good signs, they said, but there was a long way to go. Analysis of coronavirus case data compiled by Guardian Australia shows the growth rate in new cases is now approximately 10% using a five-day average, compared with a high point of 27% on 22 March. Experts caution that this slowdown is likely to be due to a drop in travel-related cases, and local transmission rates need to be carefully monitored and suppressed.
“If what you had was uncontrolled spread, then those numbers would be going up and up,” he said. Know your rights as Australia goes into stage three shutdown. Rights groups have called for Australians to understand their rights as social distancing restrictions ramp up and new penalties are introduced to enforce them.
The message from authorities is don't leave your home unless absolutely necessary - that means going to work or school if you can't do it remotely, buying essentials, seeking medical care or exercise. Indoor and outdoor gatherings have been restricted to two people as of Tuesday as part of further efforts to stop the spread of coronavirus. Police officers inform beachgoers that the beach is closed. How will the new rules be enforced? Breaking the rules will now carry stiff financial penalties across state jurisdictions as police warn they are not afraid to enforce the measures.
'Left with nothing': Australia's migrant workforce face destitution without coronavirus safety net. In a week, Popi’s household of full employment went to a bare six hours a week.
Four foreign nationals on temporary work visas, they watched in disbelief as, in turn, they endured layoff after layoff after layoff. As the Australian government has swung into action to counter the economic chaos of the coronavirus pandemic, outlaying public money to support businesses and a new jobkeeper wage subsidy to keep money in the pockets of employees laid off, Australia’s million-strong migrant workforce has been conspicuously absent. There are more than 1.1 million temporary workers in Australia – international students, working holidaymakers, bridging visa holders, those on temporary protection or safe haven visas – most are ineligible for all of the government’s assistance packages.
Migrant workers have been acutely affected by the widespread layoffs as a result of Covid-19. She says her employer, and her community, has rallied to support those hardest hit by the cuts. Popi can’t get home.
