Restrictions by State

The Australian Government has published a Roadmap to Recovery on easing the restrictions around Australia.  However, although all states and territories across the country will share the same three-step plan to reduce restrictions, each state and territory will determine its own pace.

Please be aware that the rules for each State and Territory do keep changing, so it’s a good idea to keep checking the rules.
Below is a breakdown of the restrictions in each State and Territory.

If you find it easier to talk to someone about the rules – you can contact the COVID-19 Disability HelpLine by phone or through the National Relay Service on 1800 643 787.
