Coronavirus (COVID-19) Important Updates

Community and Business responsibilities: COVID-Safe Plan

Community Services and Businesses that were previously directed to close and now reopened must complete a COVID-Safe Plan before they can reopen.

This Plan will outline how your staff and patrons can be kept safe from COVID-19. The plan must be completed and made available at your business premises. If your business was allowed to reopen during Step 1 of South Australia’s Roadmap to Recovery, you must complete a Plan.

If your committee or group has not completed the COVID-Safe Plan, or does not have the plan available at your premises when requested, you can be fined up to $5000 on the sport for non-compliance, or face prosecution.

Backyard Burning

The Environment Protection (Air Quality) Policy 2016 came into effect on 23 July 2016, and prohibits burning in the open within townships (outside of the Fire Ban Season).

As per the EPA Policy, the following exemptions apply and are allowable within townships:

  • Lighting or maintaining a fire using charcoal, dry wood or other dry plant material for the purpose of preparing food or beverages;
  • Burning charcoal or dry wood in a brazier, chiminea or fire pit for domestic heating;
  • Council has also approved the burning of dry fire wood

Please note that, as per the Policy, a fire will not be taken to be for the purpose of preparing food or beverages unless the fire is of a size, and has been built in a way, that reasonably corresponds to that purpose. Maps defining Township boundaries are available below.

The Policy does not affect burning practices outside of townships, provided that the person carrying out the burning activity;

  • complies with any mandatory measures of a prescribed burning code of practice that apply in relation to the burning activity; and
  • has regard to any recommended measures of a prescribed burning code of practice that apply in relation to the burning activity.
