Australia’s State, Federal and Territory Governments are Easing of Coronavirus restrictions step by step
The National cabinet introduced a 3-step plan as a part of easing of coronavirus restrictions to develop a COVIDSafe Australia with a new system of living and working.
Australia successfully achieved ‘ flattening the curve’. day by day the number of new COVID-19 cases in Australia is getting very low. So it is time to take some alert steps to ease of coronavirus restrictions that controlled the spread of the virus.
During the initial stage, COVID-19 has spread in different areas of the country in different ways. The 3-step plan agreed by the National Cabinet is from the advice of the Australian Health Protection Principal Committee (AHPPC).
Staying Committed to flattening the curve
- stay 1.5 metres away from other people whenever and wherever we can
- maintain good hand washing and cough/sneeze hygiene
- stay home when we’re unwell, and get tested if we have respiratory symptoms or a fever, and
- download the COVIDSafe app so we can find the virus quickly.
Success in achieving flattened the curve seriously depends on bringing up these behaviors in our daily routine.
The 3-Step Framework for a COVIDSafe Australia
The 3-step plan agreed by the National Cabinet as a part of the easing of coronavirus restrictions gives a clear way to live a COVID-19 free life.
- he first steps are cautious ones. It is important we do not move too quickly and risk losing the control we have achieved. Some businesses will start to reopen as we start to allow groups of up to 10 people to be together in homes and in the community. These steps help build our COVIDSafe economy, and also give us more opportunities to connect with family and friends.
- The second steps in each area will build on this through larger gatherings and even more businesses reopening. As businesses take steps to ensure they are COVIDSafe, we should all feel safe and confident doing some of the things we’ve missed over the last few months. Some higher-risk settings and activities will still be tightly restricted.
- The third steps are where we start to fully embrace long-term COVIDSafe ways of living and working — the arrangements that will be our ‘new normal’ while the virus remains a threat. Restrictions will be minimised. Gatherings of up to 100 people, interstate travel, growth in community sport, and the possibility of travel to New Zealand, will be underpinned by COVIDSafe practices. With everyone playing their role, we will build a COVIDSafe Australia, where lives and livelihoods are protected. It is likely some restrictions, on things like international travel and mass gatherings, will remain necessary.
All Australians have a critical role in securing their families, friends, and relatives in the community.
