covid 19 restriction update

The NSW government has announced amendments to previously imposed restrictions as a result of the number of cases of Coronavirus reaching a manageable level. Social or ‘physical’ distancing rules still apply in addition to requirements of self-isolation should you come into contact with a person who has tested positive to Coronavirus. Good hygiene is still a must that individuals should practice.

  • outdoor gatherings of up to 10 people;
    • including in a public park or place
  • cafes and restaurants can seat 10 patrons at any one time and continue to provide takeaway services;
    • they must implement the 4 square metres rules and ensure patrons from different households are exercising the 1.5metres distancing
  • up to 5 visitors may visit another household at any one time;
    • so long as the total number of visitors which are not from the household they are visiting does not exceed 5, whether the individuals be adults or children;
  • weddings can have up to 10 guests plus the celebrant and couple;
  • indoor funerals can have up to 20 mourners and outdoor funerals up to 30;
  • religious gatherings and places of worship can have up to 10 worshippers;
  • outdoor playground and exercise equipment can be used with caution; and
  • outdoor pools will be open with restrictions.

Individuals over 70 years of age or those who have pre-existing medical conditions should limit the number of visitors they have and be extra vigilant.

There is no further information to advise when other restrictions will start to ease.
