South Australia is on track to relax remaining restrictions June 29th

It's still some time away until we start to see crowds like this again in the motor sporting scene, however. Stage 3 corona-virus restrictions to allow more than 100 indoors.

Australians could enjoy gatherings of more than 100 people indoors and up to 10,000 outdoors at ticketed concerts, festivals and sporting events as part of new relaxed physical distancing rules.

Under the new rules, when states and territories choose to enter the third stage of eased restrictions, a limit of 100 people on indoor gatherings will no longer apply. Instead, venues including pubs, clubs, restaurants and places of worship, and events including funerals, will apply a four-square-metre rule in each room, which Morrison said would give larger venues a “much larger scope” for higher patronage and attendance.

Outdoors, sport and cultural gatherings would be allowed for ticketed, seated venues with fewer than 40,000 seats at one-quarter capacity – meaning crowds of up to 10,000 could attend outdoor concerts or sport matches at mid-sized suburban stadiums or ovals.

“For the larger ones I would venture that it would be the subject of a discrete approval for each venue that would be worked out with the chief health officer in each state or territory,” he said.

At a press conference in Adelaide, the South Australian premier, Steven Marshall, announced the state would also bring forward its move into stage three from 3 July to 29 June.
