You can dance if you want to: SA to ease COVID-19 restrictions on Saturday

You can dance if you want to: SA to ease COVID-19 restrictions on Saturday

South Australia is set to ease COVID-19 restrictions further from midnight tomorrow on pubs, clubs, venues, and private functions like weddings.

The changes will allow the standing consumption of food and drink outdoors at licenced venues. 

In addition, private functions with a maximum of 150 guests may have indoor/outdoor standing consumption of food/drink, and dancing will be allowed.

The easing of restrictions comes with the caveat that contract tracing records are kept for private events, and a COVID Marshal must be present at venues.

"This is going to be a big relief to many licensed premises who have not been able to have those functions on their premises," said South Australia Premier Steven Marshall.

"It's going to be a big relief to event organisers."
