Pubs and restaurants will soon be able to serve twice as many punters after Prime Minister Scott Morrison lifted the rule allowing one person per four-square metres. 

Mr Morrison announced the latest easing of coronavirus restrictions on Friday after the weekly National Cabinet meeting, with the main change being to allow pubs or clubs to have one person for every two square metres of their venue. 

'Today we also agreed, and noted the advice of the Medical Expert Panel, that the two-square metre rule can be moved to for smaller premises,' he said.

'Smaller premises will be determined by the jurisdiction but, as a rule of them, that's around about 100 square metres. 

'So that means for much smaller premises that would have otherwise being trying to stick to a four-square metre rule arrangement, this just gives them a bit more room for them to be taking more patrons.'
