RENTALS:
Good news for people struggling to pay their rent at the moment, they can't be evicted for the next six months.

The Prime Minister has announced a moratorium to stop landlords kicking people out.

However as landlords still have mortgages to pay the PM is urging them to sit down with banks and tenants to work out bespoke agreements.


FURTHER CLOSURES:
Public playgrounds, skate parks and boot camps.


HOTEL ISOLATION:
Those returning from overseas have spent their first night in hotel isolation.

Our top cop understands some people are unhappy with the bed, pillow and the dinner provided, but the reality is they need to stay put for 14 days for the safety of the state.

Police Commissioner Mick Fuller says they're being well looked after.
