Coronavirus news: Reopening of interstate borders on top of the agenda | ABC News

All states and territories are on track to move to stage three of eased restrictions by the end of next month.

The National Cabinet today agreed on relaxations – which will apply when states and territories decide to move to stage three.

The 100-person cap on indoor gatherings will be removed in favour of the four-square metre rule. This ensures larger venues will be able to cater for more customers.

Stadiums with a capacity of 40,000 or fewer will be allowed to reach 25% capacity.
