Hairdresser restrictions lifted

Hairdresser restrictions lifted

The 30 minute per patron social distancing rule imposed on hairdressers has been lifted by the National Cabinet.

Following feedback on the rule Australia's premiers and chief ministers have decided to remove the 30 minute per customer rule but the four square metre per person rule will remain in place.

"Personal contact during the patron's visit should be minimised wherever possible," says the Federal Government.

Further, States and Territories can now provide exemptions to the 10 person attendance rule at funerals in hardship cases.

The clarifications come as Australia reports 2,431 confirmed cases of Covid-19 this morning.

There are 1029 cases in NSW, 466 in VIC, 443 in QLD, 205 in WA, 197 in SA, 44 in the ACT, 42 in TAS, and five in NT.

Victoria this morning reported its first two deaths, bringing the national death toll to 11.
