It will be up to the state and territory governments to decide when cafes and restaurants reopen across the country. Here’s how the situation is looking in your state.

Restaurants and cafes will be allowed to reopen under the first stage of eased coronavirus restrictions.
But the Federal Government said it is up to the states and territories to decide when the changes will come into effect.
The relaxation in measures is among the first step of a three-stage process easing restrictions between now and July.
Prime Minister Scott Morrison said the change will be gradual so “we walk before we run”.

State and territories are easing restrictions at different times.
For example, people in the Northern Territory already know when they will be able to go to the pub, but the NSW Government is yet to make an announcement on when people can dine in at restaurants and cafes.
It’s a bit of a moveable feast, but here’s how the situation is looking in your state so far.

In Victoria, you will have to wait until Monday, May 11, to find out when you will be able to eat in at a cafe or restaurant.
That’s when Premier Daniel Andrew said he will give an update on the reopening of eateries.
“I know, I know that everyone would love to be back at the pub, or at a cafe, or at a restaurant I get it, I understand it,” Mr Andrews said.
Beyond that, he didn’t give any indication of when you will be able to go out to eat in Victoria.
Mr Andrews acknowledged this might be annoying for some.
“We’ve come too far to let everything back because we’re frustrated,” Mr Andrews said.
“I think Victorians will stick with these rules, as challenging as they are, as frustrating as they can be, because they know they’re working.
“When I have more to say about cafes and restaurants, about gatherings, inside and outside, when I have more to say about all the elements of that top line in that three-stage framework, I will do that. And that process will begin on Monday.”
He said the state, which has had a recent coronavirus outbreak, would follow the advice of experts.
“Is Victoria cautious? No. We’re just guided by the science, and we know what is at stake,” Mr Andrews said.

NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian released a statement following Friday’s National Cabinet meeting.
She said there will be no changes to restrictions listed under the first stage of the plan, which includes a ban on dining out.
“As I stated earlier this week there will be no further change to restrictions in NSW this week,” Ms Berejiklian said.
“NSW will continue to keep our citizens updated on our path forward.”
Dining in at restaurants, pubs, clubs, RSLs and cafes will be allowed for a maximum of 10 people at a time from after midnight on May 15.
However, those in outback Queensland will have greater freedoms, with 20 people allowed to dine in pubs and cafes at one time. The relaxation does not include bars and gaming facilities.

“The [outback] mayors have been onto me and I have to acknowledge that this is a different situation to the rest of Queensland because there are no quarantine cases,” Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said.
She said it was part of a gradual return to normal for a billion-dollar industry.
“There are thousands of people working in those industries and people and businesses want certainty, so this gradual return to some form of normality in our post-COVID world would look a bit different but we will back each other and get through this together,” Ms Palaszczuk said.
Western Australia
Premier Mark McGowan kicked off a “cautious relaxation” of some coronavirus measures late last month.
However, dining in Western Australia is still banned although takeaways are allowed.
Mr McGowan is expected to give an update on Sunday.
What the experts are saying about coronavirus:

An easing of restrictions in South Australia begins from Monday, May 11.
South Australian Premier Steven Marshall said outdoor dining for restaurants and cafes that already have the facilities would be allowed.
“Many [cafes and restaurants] have had outdoor tables and chairs which they’ve had to lock up, we’re allowing this in the first instance,” Mr Marshall said.
“I think it will be a welcome increase to allow patrons to sit at outdoor dining.
“I can’t imagine people will be satisfied with this for too long, that’s why we’ve already started discussions with industries and in particular, pubs and clubs, for [stage] two so we can get them up and running.”
He said restaurants won’t be able to go out and add outdoor tables and chairs to their venues due to other state and local government requirements.
People in Tasmania may have to wait a little longer than other states, with restaurants and cafes able to open on May 18.
They will be allowed to seat up to 10 people at a time for table service only. Social distancing measures will have to be followed.
“This is a sector of our community that has been hit hard,” Premier Peter Gutwein said.

The territory is moving to stage one restrictions from midnight on Friday, May 8.
But Chief Minister Andrew Barr did not address when restrictions on dining in would be relaxed in his press conference on Friday.
He said any relaxation of measures would be similar to Victoria and NSW.
This is consistent with that he has previously said.
“Were we to reopen bars and restaurants, but they remained closed in NSW, then we would get quite an influx of people into the territory and that would lead to an increased risk,” Mr Barr said several weeks ago.
Northern Territory
The Northern Territory is the frontrunner in opening venues, with Chief Minister Michael Gunner announcing a second stage of relaxations on Thursday.
People will be able to dine out and visit the pub from next Friday, May 15.
However, they won’t be allowed to stay too long, with two-hour time limits for restaurants, cafes, clubs and bars.
Venues will also have to follow social distancing and hygiene measures.
Mr Gunner encouraged Territorians to “get out and support the businesses” that shut due to coronavirus.
“Territorians have [a] responsibility to get out, buy local, back a local, and do it safely,” he said.
“They need you to buy from them, so a meal and a parmy, a beer and a parmy, that’s the order.”
