FRAMEWORK FOR NATIONAL REOPENING

29 October 2020

FRAMEWORK FOR NATIONAL REOPENING RELEASED BY DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH

The Framework for National Reopening builds on the 3-Step Framework for a COVIDSafe Australia, to nationally reopen to a state of ‘COVID Normal’, wherever it is safe to do so, by December 2020.

While restrictions put in place through 2020 have operated to slow the spread of COVID-19, the Australian community and industry have been heavily impacted by these limitations.

The aim of this framework is to provide consideration and guidance for a reopening of Australia whilst managing the health impacts and severity of COVID-19.

It is acknowledged that states and territories have the decision making authority in relation to public health measures. The national strategy is suppression with a goal of no community transmission.

The framework covers:

  • Key principles
  • Pillars to support a COVIDSafe Australia
  • Best practice health components
  • Impacts of restrictions on industry
  • COVIDSafe Plan in place
  • Industry preparedness, restrictions and risk mitigation for business
  • Proposed steps and timings summary
  • Proposed new three step framework
  • Advice on next steps
  • Appendix A: Common Operating Picture

To note: The Western Australian Government has not endorsed this framework.
