Letter to Member; COVID-19. UPDATE. Further Relaxation; Fitness And Gyms; Politicians; REX (11 June 2020)

June 11, 2020

Dear Member / Friend,

The Premier has announced today, that from this Saturday, 13 June 2020:

  • Food courts will be allowed to reopen provided they have a COVID-19 Safe Plan in place and adhere to the 4 square metre rule. There can be a maximum of 50 people per separate eating area with enhanced hygiene and cleaning processes being carried out;
  •  The number of people allowed to visit homes increases from 5 to 20, with permitted outdoor gatherings increased from 10 to 20 people; and
  • 10 people will be allowed to participate in indoor fitness classes and up to 100 people in gyms, subject to the 4 square metre rule.

The Federal Remuneration Tribunal has today determined that federal politicians will not receive a pay rise this year because of the exceptional circumstances created by COVID-19, and after taking into account submissions put forward by senior government members.

Has announced that from 6 July 2020 it will increase the number of regional flights in NSW, Victoria and South Australia. Not all ports will benefit. As far as I am aware, there is no start date for flights to Armidale.

All the best. Stay safe, stay distant.
