Widespread social distancing measures will have to be implemented at pubs, public transport, cinemas, and local sporting ovals before they can re-open once Australia begins to ease its coronavirus lockdown measures.

A leading tourist board has also warned hotel buffets will not be open – with guests turning to in-room dining during the first phase of restriction easing.
