Coronavirus Australia: Government urges businesses to prepare to reopen

Businesses forced to temporarily shut their doors have been urged by the federal government to get ready to reopen.

It comes as many states and territories start to ease lockdown restrictions following a continued fall in coronavirus cases.

Employment Minister Michaelia Cash has called on retailers to create ‘COVID-safe workplaces,’ which are ready to safely welcome customers as soon they’re given the ‘green light’.

“Each workplace needs to look at its individual circumstances in what will be the new normal environment we live in,” Minister Cash said on Sunrise.

“The virus will still be with us, but if we can control the spread then we can restart the economy.”

Minister Cash says there are a number of ways businesses in the retail, hospitality and fitness industries can prepare to reopen over the next weeks and months.

Some suggestions include:

  • Limiting the number of people in-store at any one time
  • Encouraging customers to shop alone where possible
  • Scheduling deliveries to avoid crowding
  • Cleaning door handles, lift buttons, hand rails and other high-touch objects and areas regularly
  • Using floor markings to remind customers to maintain a distance of 1.5m
  • Ensuring customers have downloaded the COVIDSafe contact tracing app

Lifting Lockdown

After weeks of “stay at home” orders, some Australian states and territories are starting to ease their coronavirus restrictions.

Depending on where you live, it means this weekend you might be able to visit your mates, go shopping, enjoy a family picnic, work out in groups or even go camping.
