Indoor sport for those 18 and under can recommence.

Community spaces like libraries and neighborhood houses can have up to 20 indoors, with groups of up to ten.

Galleries, museums and music halls will now be able to open.

Employers still have to maintain a Covid Safe Plan and consult with affected staff. Members are urged to contact your local ASU workplace delegate or the Australian Services Union at or call 1300 855 570 if you have any concerns or queries regarding a return to work.
