Key Facts for restaurants and cafes:

1. Restaurants and Cafes are limited to Takeaway and Delivery ONLY from midday, Monday 23rd March 2020.

2. Businesses are able to have customers enter the premises to order takeaway food but cannot serve food in their premises at all (including in takeaway containers). For example, no takeaway cups whilst sitting at tables.

3. We would recommend that they remove all tables and chairs in the venues other than what is required to allow people to wait for food (please ensure they comply with 1 person per 4sqm rule and social distancing.

4. No new permits or licences are required to allow a business to start serving takeaway other than adhering to pre-existing food handling legislation at a state level.
