The Prime Minister has issued new advice, giving guidance to various types of business on the restrictions they are required to comply with as a result of the Coronavirus.
He has also commented on the expected duration of the current social distancing measures, which are likely to be in place for at least six months.
Most importantly, the Federal Government has not announced any restrictions on Dealership activity at this stage, provided the personal hygiene and social distancing requirements are complied with.
This situation may change and there is expected to be further updates, with Federal Cabinet meeting again today to consider ongoing developments.
In some cases, state and territory governments may impose restrictions of their own, and we would recommend that you check their Coronavirus websites to ensure you are not in breach of local requirements.
