Today marks the beginning of a new chapter in uplifting restrictions after the COVID-19 pandemic.
New South Wales will invite restaurants, cafes, hotels, pubs, galleries, holidays and beauty services to welcome 50 patrons today as social-distancing measures around the state are eased significantly.
While bookings of no more than 10 people are still enacted, Australians can enjoy food, beverages, and human interaction across the state.
Non-essential travel has also been given the green light where people can now visit Sydney and even regional areas. However, while the New South Wales borders are welcoming travel, borders still remain closed in the Northern Territory, Queensland, South Australia, Tasmania and Western Australia, meaning interstate visitors may be asked to quarantine upon their return.
Queensland in particular also made a surprising announcement this morning that they will open up non-essential travel to Queenslanders only for the moment.
While this might not match up to other states, it is a sure step in the right direction for the tourism industry who has no doubt, felt the one of hardest impacts from the coronavirus outbreak.
