NSW COVID-19 restrictions extended

In an effort to manage the current outbreak, restrictions, including density limits, will continue for another month.

In an effort to manage the current COVID-19 outbreak, the New South Wales Government has announced it will extend current restrictions for another month.

As the NSW Government focuses on a safe return to school and restarting elective surgery, the roll-over of restrictions such as capacity limits will continue to impact events.

Continuing from Thursday, 27 January until Sunday, 28 February, hospitality venues must follow the one-person-per-two-square-metre rule indoors, masks will be required in indoor settings, QR check-ins will be compulsory, and singing and dancing will not be permitted in venues.

NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet said the continuation of restrictions was part of transitioning to living with COVID.

“We have always said we will respond to what is in front of us and tailor our approach as required and that is exactly what we are doing to ensure we are keeping people safe and protecting our health system,” Premier Perrottet said.

As additional measures, people are encouraged to get their booster shots, continue to work from home where possible and to reduce mingling when eating and drinking.
