Restrictions Keep Lifting

Post date: Jun 1, 2020 9:30:37 PM

While a range of restrictions are being eased across NSW from yesterday, people are still being urged to maintain physical distancing.

Health Minister, Brad Hazzard, says that it is vital both businesses and patrons follow health and safety guidelines, to ensure to keep people in jobs and businesses in business.

From yesterday, pubs, clubs, cafes and restaurants can have up to 50 customers within each seated food and drink area.

Other allowances include:

  • Up to 50 people can attend places of worship and attend a funeral;
  • Up to 20 guests can attend weddings;
  • Beauty, nail, tanning and waxing salon operators can begin treatments;
  • Camping grounds and caravan parks can open; and
  • Museums, galleries and libraries can open.

The news has been welcomed by local Hotels and businesses across the region.

Amanda from the Courthouse Hotel in Mudgee, says that her hotel has taken out the chairs that can’t be used to help with social distancing, asking that patrons “get on board” with the new rules, as it will be hard for all of us.

One major change is the government’s guideline that Pubs and Clubs must collect contact details of all patrons when they enter the premises.

Amanda says that under the rules, if you don’t supply the details, you are not allowed to enter the buildings.
