Regional Australians have been assured that while COVID-19 interventions happening in city areas may not be necessary yet in their communities, they must heed instructions on social distancing.
But "more draconian" measures could be coming and the Prime Minister has brought forward a national cabinet meeting of states and ministers to tonight.
It's understood bigger shutdowns of public spaces, and whether schools will be shut down, will be discussed.
Prime Minister Scott Morrison made the comment about regional communities during the announcement of a second $66 billion economic stimulus package that will "cushion" Australians.
"What happened at Bondi Beach yesterday was not OK and served as a message to federal state leaders that too many Australians are not taking these issues seriously enough," he said.
"State premiers and ministers may have to take far more draconian measures.
"It's a simple plea we need you to do your bit.
"More stronger measures will be coming and they will be coming in more localised efforts.
"If you see it happening in one part of the country, that does necessary mean it has to apply in your part of the country.
"We have decided we are moving immediately to recommend against all non-essential travel in Australia."
Not-for-profits and small businesses will receive a tax-free cash payment of up to $100,000 to help them pay staff.
Early access of $20,000 to superannuation over two years for those in financial stress were among four key announcements made on Sunday.
