Two Australian states have been identified as ‘guinea pigs’ for the easing of coronavirus restrictions.
Western Australia and South Australia could be the likely locations for a plan like to monitor how successful lifting the restrictions would be.
The plan would likely involve lifting restrictions on playgrounds, cafes and restaurants sooner and give other states more confidence in doing so.
Authorities would monitor the progress to build a picture of a national impact if restrictions were limited.
The plan is set to be discussed at National Cabinet in the coming weeks.
