As at the time of publishing this article, the restrictions are:

From 11 May 2020, outdoor dining can be offered by restaurants and cafes.

However, to do so, they:

Must:

  • recommence seated dining in outdoor areas only - indoor service is still prohibited
  • limit the number of people on site to 1 person per 4 square metres (density requirement)
  • observe, and encourage observing of, social distancing (1.5 metres rule)
  • ensure no alcohol is served or consumed on the premises
  • have a maximum of 10 patrons at any time

Should:

  • minimise use of shared equipment
  • maintain and encourage good hygiene; offer hand sanitiser
  • ensure frequent environmental disinfection cleaning of the premises
  • implement signage/markings to support compliance by staff and patrons
  • review aspects of their business that may increase the risk of transmission; ensure that any period of closure has not caused non-compliance with food safety standards

Now it is important we get out and support our dining industry, so be sure to book in at your local today!
