Australia Orders All Cinemas Closed Due to Coronavirus
The Australian federal government has ordered all cinemas in the country to close, as an additional measure against the spread of the deadly coronavirus.
The order was made on Sunday evening local time and takes effect from noon on Monday. The measure could remain in place for several months.
The move is part of a stricter package of measures that will affect all venues that are deemed “principal places of socialisation.” As well as cinemas, that includes pubs, restaurants, casinos, indoor sports facilities and places of worship. Restaurants are allowed to operate a take-away service only. Schools remain open.
