Prime Minister Scott Morrison has announced that pubs, clubs, licensed premises in hotels, cinemas & places of worship will be closed from midday tomorrow.
Restaurants & cafes will only be able to offer takeaway & home delivery.
He said ‘this is stage 1 of this response’ and will be reviewed on a ‘monthly basis’. They could be in place for up to 6 months.
Schools are remaining open tomorrow, however, state by state, that may change, with Victoria already bringing school holidays forward to Tuesday.
The news comes as Coronavirus cases surged across the country and led to New South Wales and Victoria into closing all non essential services within 48 hours.
