NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian has confirmed COVID-19 restrictions will tighten across the state from Friday 24 July, with new limits on gatherings and events.
Weddings and corporate events will be limited to 150 people, subject to the four square metre rule.
Berejiklian said people attending events must remain seated and advised that there must be “no dancing, no singing, no mingling”.
This news comes just three weeks after the NSW Government agreed to remove the limit on gatherings from 1 July 2020.
Also coming into to effect from Friday 24 July, funerals and places of worship will be limited to 100 people, while bookings at pubs, restaurants, bars, cafes and clubs will be limited to a maximum of 10 people.
Speaking to media today, 17 July, Berejiklian and NSW chief medical officer Kerry Chant confirmed eight new cases of COVID-19 had been recorded in NSW last night, plus five more cases this morning.
Chant said the total number of people linked to the Crossroads Hotel Casula cluster is now at 42.
