As restrictions on businesses and public gatherings continue to tighten amid the spread of the coronavirus, Junee businesses are doing what they can to keep their doors open.
Late Sunday night, the federal government announced pubs across Australia would close, with food venues transitioning to takeaway only.
The Loco Hotel is one of many Junee businesses to see big changes, now relying on the takeaway breakfast meals and coffees sold through its cafe.
Leasa Toll from the Loco Hotel said the cafe was seeing regulars stop by for a coffee, but she believed many in the town were staying home as much as they could.
"Like everywhere, no one wants to take that risk of going out," she said.
Ms Toll said it was set to be a tough period for local businesses across small towns, especially those without the ability to open under the current restrictions.
"It's going to have a devastating impact on rural communities that are small like Junee, I suppose we are blessed that we do have the cafe to still keep open, but there's a lot of establishments that don't have that ability to do that."
The cafe is also offering delivery for food and coffee for those who call in to order.
As of Wednesday, businesses still allowed to operate include cafes with takeaway only, hairdressers with strict social distancing measures, pharmacies, supermarkets, retail outlets, fuel outlets, accommodation, community transport and health services.
Large indoor public venues such as the Athenium Theatre and the Junee Recreation and Aquatic Centre have been closed, along with the bar and dining facilities across local pubs.
Ms Toll encouraged those who preferred to stay home to make use of businesses like the Loco offering delivery, and get as much as they could from their local businesses.
"Don't drive half an hour away to get coffee, come down to the Loco and get your coffee or if you are scared, give us a ring and we'll come and deliver it right to your door," she said.
"We're all in this together and we'll get through it, keep safe and keep healthy."
