Hardware, pet stores, agricultural and office supplies now have to operate using click and collection only or delivery only as part of new Covid restrictions. However, smaller companies may, under certain circumstances, allow some people to return to work. It happens after 19,000 people checked into a Bunnings store on a day in Canberra during a lockdown. The new restrictions take effect from 11.59pm on Friday, after being announced by Prime Minister Andrew Barr during his daily Covid update. Only artisans will still be able to enter hardware or building stores during this time. The government said the new changes have been made to ensure the safety of the community and the significant businesses that have been in operation during the lockdown. The changes will also allow non-essential companies that have not been able to open due to lockdown to have up to two people in the workplace perform click and collection or delivery services as well as perform emergency work and maintenance. Companies with 20 or fewer full-time equivalents will be allowed to operate under the new restrictions.

Real estate companies are allowed to have a person carry out a property inspection, while a person can have access to a property for photography or video, but only when no one else is present in the home. However, house inspections and auctions must still not take place in person and must take place online. Canberrans, which needs rapid waste disposal during lockdown, will now be able to use waste delivery services. Increased safety measures will be adopted at drop-off points, but health authorities have urged residents to use drop-off points only if important. Commercial and domestic cleaning services are only allowed to resume for businesses that need emergency cleaning, e.g. Cleaning at the end of leases, as well as cleaning for vulnerable people, such as NDIS clients.
