Which cafes, restaurants and pubs are reopening for dine-in?

By Madi Chwasta

Get ready for a night out, because cafes, restaurants and pubs across the region are able to reopen for seated customers from Monday.

But venues have to adhere to a number of Victorian Government guidelines before serving dine-in.

These include allowing a maximum of 20 people per enclosed space (not including staff), and enforcing a density quotient of one person per four square metres of floor space.

Tables must be spaced at least 1.5 m apart, can seat no more than six, and set seating times have been recommended.

Certain signage must be displayed, hygiene and cleaning measures implemented and a contact book of all visitors has to be recorded to help with contact tracing if necessary.

Staff have also been encouraged to complete online coronavirus training, available from June 1.

Alcohol can only be served with a meal, and takeaway venues that do not provide table service are not allowed to open their dine-in areas yet.
