A longstanding ban on dancing at South Australia’s pubs and clubs will be lifted from Friday 26 February 2021 but with some restrictions, while the state will also remove its remaining border restrictions with Victoria.
From one minute past midnight on Friday, small licensed venues with 200 or fewer people can allow dancing, as long as patrons check-in using QR codes and maintain a distance of one person per two-square-metres. Dancing will also be allowed at larger venues of between 200 to 1000 people, so long as only 50 people dance at one time in a designated area such as on a dance floor.
South Australia will also lift its remaining border restrictions with Victoria on Friday after the eastern state successfully controlled the spread of the Holiday Inn cluster.
From Friday, residents of greater Melbourne will be allowed to travel freely into South Australia without needing to get tested. Those who recently travelled into South Australia and are currently in quarantine will be able to leave quarantine on Friday, but they still need to get their day five and 12 tests.

Thank you everyone for everything you're doing to stop the spread; let's keep up the positive work in South Australia.
