Despite that the 30-minute rules was removed, other measures were put in place. The saloons and the barbers had to make sure to adhere to physical-distancing restrictions. These restrictions stated that there has to be one person per 4 square meters.

The Chief Executive from Just Cuts, Denis McFadden said this was nit realistic. He stated that it is impossible for stylists to do a shampoo of a haircut without touching the person.

At the same time, the hairdressers had also placed complaints over the 30-minute hairdresser rule.

McFadden said the only reasonable thing to was to close all the saloons. Furthermore, he said it would be hard for the owners of the saloons and barbers to out in place the social distancing measures and get the job done as well.

The governments undecided hairdresser restrictions have taken its toll in many saloons.  Owner of salons may want to close, however they fear action taken against them by the Fair Work Act. At the same time, the growing pandemic calls for self-isolation. While clients at the same insist in getting their hair done. All the indecisiveness has left both hairdressers and owners of saloons stressed and confused at the same time.

At the same time, they have to consider the 1.5 meter social distancing rule and the 4 square meters per person restriction.

The National Cabinet decided on no ore than 10 people at funerals.  The Prime Minister, Scott Morrison also said that the state would have they discretion to allow extra people to attend funerals.
