The 30-minute restriction on haircuts has been lifted as the federal government tinkers with measures to slow the spread of coronavirus.

In a statement today, Prime Minister Scott Morrison said he had listened to the feedback of the "practical implementation" of the COVID-19 measures and agreed with Premiers and Chief Ministers at National Cabinet last night that the "instruction regarding 30 minutes per patron will be lifted".

It's effective immediately, but the prime minister says the four square metre rule per person must be strictly followed by hairdressers and barbers, and personal contact during appointments must be minimised.

The PM also announced that states and territories can also provide exemptions to the 10-person limit for funerals in cases of hardship.
