Service updates - COVID 19

With the ongoing risk of COVID-19 in the community, a number of public health measures are now in place for regional NSW outside the Greater Sydney region (including Blue Mountains, Central Coast, Shellharbour and Wollongong).

These include:

  • People who have been in the Greater Sydney region (including Blue Mountains, Central Coast, Shellharbour and Wollongong) on or after 21 June should follow the stay-at-home measures for a period of 14 days after they left Greater Sydney
  • Visitors to households will be limited to 5 guests – including children
  • Masks will be compulsory in all indoor non-residential settings, including workplaces, and at organised outdoor events
  • Drinking while standing at indoor venues will not be allowed
  • Singing by audiences and choirs at indoor venues or by congregants at indoor places of worship will not be allowed
  • Dancing will not be allowed at indoor hospitality venues or nightclubs; however, dancing is allowed at weddings for the wedding party only (no more than 20 people)
  • Dance and gym classes limited to 20 people per class (masks must be worn)
  • The one person per four square metre rule will be re-introduced for all indoor and outdoor settings, including weddings and funerals
  • Outdoor seated, ticketed events will be limited to 50 per cent seated capacity.

Every business is encouraged to have the NSW Government QR code system in place and have every customer check in and out.

Getting tested and following NSW Health advice even with the slightest symptoms is especially important during this time. Everyone's actions will make a difference.
