As restrictions continue to subside gradually across the country, attention has now shifted to what post-pandemic daily life is like in the coming months.
Domestic air travel tends to look different from when you arrive at the airport.
There will be a push towards check-in without contact online and through the mobile application, and a decrease in self-service will be encouraged.
Expect that many lounges will be closed, and social rules will be imposed in the waiting area at the terminal.
Boarding will stagger to minimize density and passengers will be able to scan their own boarding pass to prevent contact with staff.
On board, Qantas and Jetstar will give each passenger a face mask and disinfectant tissue.
Wearing a mask on the ship will be recommended but not mandatory on this airline.
Rex will bring a mandatory mask for all passengers starting June 1 as well as body temperature testing.
During the flight, Jetstar and Qantas said food and beverage services will be reduced, and for now, in-flight entertainment has been removed.
While Virgin Australia says they will leave their empty seats to maintain social distance, Qantas has confirmed that they will fly their aircraft to capacity, saying health advice supports this move.
The Rail, Tram and Bus unions raised concerns about the practicality of enforcing these rules, saying the driver did not have to go to the commuter.
Commuters in all countries are encouraged to avoid busy public transportation, which can see longer waiting times, and more people on the road.
The COVID-19 pandemic has proven our capacity for flexible and remote work arrangements because many have moved to work from home.
This will also limit the number of people traveling by public transportation during peak hours.
Hot-desking and small meeting rooms are a thing of the past and many staff can continue to work from home.
Ultimately, this is likely to result in changes to office rent, as businesses begin to require less floor space for their staff who work remotely.
Australians welcome the return of socializing in pubs and restaurants, but things will still be limited for a while.
Some places may continue to implement table service only, time limits as seen in the Northern Territory, and alcohol service only with food.
Buffet and dining together are also a thing of the past, as is a busy food court.
