If you are eligible to reopen or increase your operations, visit the industry guidelines to ensure your business is safe from any potential spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus).
Businesses that are reopening must comply with the one person per four square metre rule.
Health Minister Brad Hazzard said it is vital for businesses and patrons to follow health and safety guidelines to ensure people stay in jobs and for businesses to stay open.
“Everyone should maintain physical distancing and practise good hygiene, and if even the mildest symptoms present such as a sore throat or runny nose, get yourself tested,” Mr Hazzard said.
