Booze & Dining Restrictions Easing Tomorrow


Having a glass of wine with a meal at a local cafe or restaurant will be possible from tomorrow with the South Australian Government announcing a further easing of Covid-19 restrictions.

From Friday 21 May, eateries can serve alcohol and can welcome a maximum of 20 patrons, with a maximum of 10 patrons indoors and 10 outdoors.

On June 5, pubs and other licensed venues will be permitted to open — but only for seated dining.

South Australia's previous restriction roadmap contemplated restaurants and cafes only allowing 10 outdoor diners, with no alcohol until June 8, but that has now been brought forward.

Premier Steven Marshall said South Australians' ongoing success in helping limit the spread of COVID-19 has enabled the Government to further ease restrictions on advice of the transition committee with just one new case recorded in SA in the last 28 days.

"This is all about accelerating local economic and jobs recovery, while rewarding South Australians for their outstanding efforts over many weeks in helping stop the spread of this virus," said Premier Marshall.
