The Government has officially recommended that all non-essential organised gatherings of 500 people or more to not go ahead from Monday.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison also announced that Australia has introduced a Level 3 travel advice and recommended that Australians only travel if it is essential to do so.


It is expected that the government will announce that gatherings of 500 or over will be cancelled over coronavirus fears.

It comes after nine Australians, aged in their 50s, 60s and 70s, tested positive for coronavirus while travelling in Aspen. They are now in isolation in their hotels.
