As pubs and clubs must shut from noon today, and restaurants and cafes can only do takeaways, venues across the south-west are coming up with innovative measures to service the community.
Lady Vandeburg and Vandebrew owner Catherine Kelson has incorporated takeaway orders into her businesses as well as her own measures.
"We have no contact pick-ups meaning people can order via our app, we call them for payment and to find out what their car looks like, we then text them when their order is ready and they pick it up via our alleyway," she said.
"We can also deliver coffee, food and desserts across Warrnambool through Lady Vandeburg. We've been doing this for a week and it's been really popular.
"People can order their waffles, doughnut fries and brownies and we'll deliver.
"Above all, we're staying positive. We're not talking about coronavirus, we're talking about coming out on the other side."
Ms Kelson employs five full-time staff and a few casual staff.
"My ultimate goal is to keep my staff," she said.
"If I look after them, they will look after me.
"My casual staff have other jobs or are business owners themselves so it's about managing them.
"At the end of this my team will be so much stronger."
