Stage 1 of lifting restrictions
You may already be aware that the Prime Minister made the announcement on the 9th of May that there will be three stages when it comes to the lifting of restrictions. Stage one of lifting restrictions includes the ability for 10 people gatherings outdoors, 5 visitors per household and the ability to participate in outdoor recreation activities. Most of the other states that have had consecutive low cases of Covid 19 have also opened cafes and restaurants. Victoria on the other hand has had a small spike in numbers after a couple of weeks of very low numbers.
Stage 1 of lifting restrictions does not have any impact on Melbourne DJ Hire as events are still banned. But the slow easing of restrictions gives us hope that people will have hope and be in the mind frame to starting to plan their events towards the end of the year. Events like birthdays, house parties, engagement parties and weddings. There has been a lot of uncertainty the last couple of months, the number of cases were rising and it wasn’t clear what was going to happen. But because the public did the right thing and stayed at home, kept their distance the country can now slowly start lifting some restrictions.
Melbourne DJ Hire believe that the government has made the right decision to lift the restrictions in smaller stages. There are so many people in the arts, entertainment and hospitality industry that are struggling and this announcement gives us the opportunity to plan what we can do in the time being. Some of our Melbourne DJs have started looking for casual jobs, some people are doing short online courses so they can find a job. A musician that we have worked with applied to get a forklift license as soon as the restrictions came in place, there was a high demand for factory workers and drivers so a lot of our Melbourne DJs have taken on those jobs until we can get back to working at gigs.
Let’s hope for a successful stage one so that we can all go back to enjoying the company of our friends and family.
