Australia.- Casino Canberra will reduce its indoor capacity in line with new Covid-19 measures ordered by local government.

Aquis Entertainment’s casino will restrict the capacity to one customer per four square metres of usable indoor space, which means a maximum of 505 customers in the property.

The casino will maintain its other Covid-19 safety protocols.

Casino Canberra reopened to the public in August and announced that revenues had reached pre-Covid-19 levels by October despite the restrictions in place.

The casino confirmed in a company filing that it was no longer eligible for JobKeeper subsides as it had been in phase II of the government scheme, which ran from 28 September 2020 to 3 January 2021.

On January 12, the Australian Capital Territory had registered a total 118 cases of Covid-19 and no active cases. The region has only recorded three deaths related to the pandemic.

ACT chief health officer Dr Kerryn Coleman has announced changes to travel restrictions from Covid-19 affected areas of New South Wales.

The Central Coast and Wollongong have been removed from the list of affected areas as well as some areas of Greater Sydney. People travelling from those areas will no longer be required to quarantine.

A Public Health Direction will remain in place for other areas of Western and South-western Sydney which present the highest risk of Covid-19 transmission: Northern Beaches, Blacktown City, Burwood, Canada Bay City, Canterbury-Bankstown, Cumberland, Fairfield City, Inner West, Liverpool City, Paramatta City and Strathfield Municipality.
