Cafes and Restaurants

On 1 June 2020 restrictions for Cafes and Restaurants were eased by the State Government. As part of this, to prevent the potential spread of COVID-19,  cafes and restaurants are required to develop a COVID-19 Safety Plan. The plan will detail how each business will keep customers and workers safe.

The plan must be available for inspection by an authorised officer as requested.

Food service training COVID-19 Awareness

The NSW Food Authority has partnered with NSW Health to develop COVID-19 awareness for food service training.

It is a FREE voluntary online training course to support food businesses in providing a COVID safe environment.

The course includes key advice, links to relevant resources and has a quiz at the end. An acknowledgement certificate is generated on completion of the course.

The NSW Premier announced that on 1 June restrictions would be eased for cafes, restaurants, pubs and clubs to allow for up to 50 customers, subject to a one person per four square metre rule, and with strict social distancing guidelines in place. All businesses will also be required to develop a COVID-19 Safety Plan, and to keep records of all staff, customers with a longer contact experience such as dine-in, and contractors for at least 28 days.

The COVID-19 awareness for food service training course aims to provide useful information to help food businesses understand the changes that have come into effect and what they need to do.
