Sports crowds up to 10k permitted from July

Small sports stadiums with capacities under 40k seats will be able to reopen from July. They'll be permitted 10k ticketed seats per event and require social distancing around food and bev outlets.

Is this only for open-air venues?

It's up to 25% capacity for venues 40,000 seats and under. So RAC for example could take 3,500. At least that's how I read it.

In a significant relief for restaurants and other venues, the 100 person cap will be removed on indoor gatherings under the national cabinet's stage three restrictions, but venues will have to enforce rules to allow only one person for every four square metres, limiting numbers according to the size of the space.

Yep, that's my understanding too.
But does he have any authority anyway? Would this not be a state-by-state thing just like pretty much everything else is?
(eg. the venue limit in WA is 2 square metres per person, not 4)

25% only?

Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and to some extent Adelaide would be bleeding money next season.

And how is the ticketing logic going to work?

If I go with wife and 2 kids, no distancing required between ourselves.
If I go with 3 mates, we need to distance?

What if I paid for really nice seats but it pushes me back to the next section up due to spacing?

Everyone still has to go in the same doors so if anyone does test positive there's still a risk to the entire venue. So it's wise to keep total numbers down.

Kids are back at school, playing bball and football at breaks. No-one is really observing social distancing at schools, shops, cafes or elsewhere. People are protesting in numbers. People are socialising. Football teams are training and are organised. Time for bball to start back up, and it seems that organisations have got themselves into a world of admin and policies from which they are struggling to emerge. Too many rules and placemats / powerpoints. Good intentions and good people, for sure, but time to get cracking!

But we are our own state with our own rules which should be set accordingly rather than just following the Eastern states. It's been nearly 2 months since anyone from SA tested positive. Hundreds and thousands of people go to work everyday, thousands going to school everyday, all the people just trampling through supermarkets and shops everyday, life is normal, but sport, thats a no no.

"Adelaide is not the entire country."

Fair point but not the full story.

At the moment, the low rates of positive results throughout the country are very encouraging. There's still a pretty high number of tests being performed and on mostly people who are symptomatic. Given infection rates are likely to be higher among such a group when compared to the rest of the population, the low confirmed infection rates are a good sign.

As well, the substantial majority of recently confirmed cases have been able to be tracked to known cases, indicating very low rates of within-community transmission. Victoria and NSW seem to be most at risk from within-community transmission and Victoria seems to have the higher risk profile.

I'm confident these facts were key considerations behind the decisions to allow (most) protests to go ahead last week, to allow larger crowds into stadia, and to open up borders next month.

That said, if the Melbourne case who attended the protest last weekend produces a new set of case clusters, there's time to rescind some of those decisions. e.g., keep the Victorian border(s) closed. Likewise, if new clusters pop up elsewhere.

The key words are "up-to". If your venue isn't able to accommodate social distancing for up to 10'000 fans, you wont get 10'000 fans.

But it's still early days. The NBL season isn't expected to start until November - four months after these conditions set in. And even then, the NBL will be unlikely to start until all conditions are lifted.

I'd be very surprised if we didn't have full NBL stadiums by November or December this year, provided the professional banner-waving whingers haven't set us back.

South Australia has now a false sense of security. Safe to say covid is no longer here. But when borders open there is bound to be someone from Eastern states that will bring it. And South Australians will still be in the mindset of its not here and be slack in most things that will ultimately result in clusters occuring. I would assume Eastern states people are very much proactive in social distancing etc because threat is real. But if you go to shopping centres here now, there's handshakes, hugging etc because of safety blanket of no covid. But life has got to go back to normal for economy. But won't be long before people will be scared to go to shops and everyone is in masks again.

All lives matter is what is often brought up against the BLM movement. The protest is about how people of colour are more likely to be singled out and subjected to discrimination. Black people in America are two and a held times more likely to be shot than white people. Then the other argument is the white Australian woman shot by a black police officer in Minnesota, why were there no riots then. Most people with those arguments say they aren't racist, they know a black person or went to school with someone indigenous.
I was born into white privilege, but I have seen first hand how black people are treated differently. I was part of a local club where a committee member stated in a meeting the biggest problem in the club were the Sudanese. A couple of other committee members who were there just smiled and nodded, wish I had said something then but was too angry and walked out.
So yes, all lives matter, but the protests are about the treatment and discrimination, not solely about the disproportionate number of black deaths in custody.

Cool don't hold your passion for another day. As with the dude at the Melbourne rally, catch COVID and risk spreading it. Brilliant. Unfortunately protests in Australia will do nothing. Dissect the 400+ deaths in custody and how many are actually police brutality? The stats are out there look it up yourself. As usual Australia is just rent a crowd. Holding a Flag and protesting makes nice pictures on Instagram. It does not impact cultural, political or institutional change. History has shown this. G20 rallies are a perfect example

I am from American and that is absolutely true. It used to be taught in American history classes in high school long ago. The democratic party doesn't deny it. Their response is usually that the parties positions switched in the 60's. The democratic party also voted against all of the civil rights amendments. Lincoln started the Republican party to fight slavery. The civil war was between those that opposed slavery (the north) and those that needed slavery for the plantations (the south). But I don't really have to defend the truth. The truth is like a lion. It doesn't have to be defended. Just have to let it loose. It will defend itself. Also the part about where BLM donations go is also true. Non profits in America have to release where their money goes by law every year. Biden got the most money of all the democrats. I also saw that last week in the papers. There have been several people in America that have offered 1 million dollars for anyone that could prove any Republican ever owned a slave and no one was ever able to claim the money. And the KKK was the military arm of the democratic party. Before you post you might want to at least do a little research so you don't look so stupid. You might want to google Dinesh D'souza. He is famous in America for going around liberal colleges and giving lectures and ripping new assholes in smart ass liberal professors with an abundance of facts. He's made several famous movies and Obama threw him in jail for several months because D'souza embarrassed him with the truth. Obama loved throwing journalists in jail when they pissed him off. Look it up.

D'souza is from India and you're right he is wicked smart. I've seen a bunch of his lectures and he tells a story about one of his friends in India who wants to get him to help him come to America. Desouza asked him why does he want to come to America so badly and his friend from India replies that he wants to come to a country where even poor people are fat. The man's a genius.
