Further Restrictions Lifting Everywhere

Post date: Jun 15, 2020 4:06:44 AM

Further restrictions imposed during COVID-19 will be further eased next month with strict social distancing rules.

Making the announcement yesterday, Premier Gladys Berejiklian says the state is able to further ease restrictions due to the limited community transmission of COVID-19.

The July 1 measures will allow vital community hubs in the regions to open, such as showgrounds, providing a big boost for communities many of which are still recovering from the devastating impacts of drought and the bushfires.

Member for Bathurst, Paul Toole says, that locally this will mean the number of people allowed inside indoor venues will be determined by the ‘one person per 4 square metre’ rule, with no upper limit. This includes function centres. \

All activity must be seated only.

Cultural and sporting events at outdoor venues with a maximum capacity of 40,000 will be allowed up to 25 percent of their normal capacity. Events must be ticketed and seated and follow strict guidelines.

On compassionate grounds, restrictions on funerals will immediately be eased to allow the four square metre rule to apply.

All other restrictions including 20 guests inside the home and 20 for outside gatherings remain the same.
