COVID-19 restrictions to ease but compliance must increase

A number of COVID-19 restrictions across NSW will be eased as the state continues to move forward in a COVID-Safe way.

From 12:01am Monday 29 March, the following will apply:

  • no caps on weddings and funerals
  • no restrictions on singing including in places of worship
  • no restriction on dancing including at weddings and in pubs and nightclubs
  • no cap on visitors in the home (if there are more than 100 people there must be a COVID-19 Safety plan and electronic recording of visitor details)
  • 200 people allowed for personal outdoor public gatherings
  • all venues to move to the one person per 2sqm rule (venues will be allowed at least 25 people before the 2sqm rule applies)
  • 100% seated capacity at entertainment venues including stadiums and theatres
  • mask use including on public transport will move from ‘mandatory’ to ‘strongly recommended’.

Businesses and other organisations must continue to ensure they keep accurate records of all attendances, including through QR Codes, to enable fast contact tracing in the event of any community transmission.

Premier Gladys Berejiklian said the easing of restrictions is a significant step forward as NSW continues its COVID-19 recovery.

“With no community transmission and our quarantine and frontline workers now receiving their second vaccinations, the timing is right to further ease restrictions across the state,” Ms Berejiklian said.

“As we do this, it is important we don’t let our guard down and continue to check in at venues, keep our social distance and get tested if we have even the mildest of symptoms.”

Treasurer Dominic Perrottet said the further lifting of restrictions would help support businesses and jobs across the state.

“Today we take a another big stride in the right direction, easing restrictions is important in helping businesses return to normal, it’s like a jab of confidence for the economy,” Mr Perrottet said.

Health Minister Brad Hazzard said the further easing of restrictions was possible due to the support and sacrifices of the people of NSW.

“The initial focus of our vaccination program on frontline quarantine, border and healthcare workers has also given us greater confidence as it reduces the risk of COVID being introduced into the community from an overseas source,” Mr Hazzard said.

Dr Chant said it is critical everyone continues to practise COVID-safe behaviours, including using QR codes, staying home if unwell and getting tested.

“I also urge everyone to get vaccinated as soon as they are eligible and able to do so. It will not only protect you, your family and loved ones, but will keep the whole community safe,” Dr Chant said.

Update on Restrictions 2 January 2021 | NSW Government

Given the risk of COVID-19 transmission on the Northern Beaches and across Greater Sydney (including Wollongong, Central Coast and Blue Mountains), the following adjustments are being made.

From midnight tonight, the southern zone of the Northern Beaches will be subject to the same restrictions as Greater Sydney.

Restrictions for the northern zone of the Northern Beaches remain the same with stay at home orders in place until 9 January 2021;

  • No visitors to the home.
  • Five northern zone residents can gather outdoors (not at homes) for exercise and recreation, from within the same zone.
  • Non-essential businesses remain closed.

Given the general risk in Greater Sydney, new measures are required to reduce the transmission potential of COVID-19 while maintaining economic activity.

The following measures for Greater Sydney (including Wollongong, Central Coast and Blue Mountains) are effective from midnight tonight:

  • Face masks will be mandatory in the following indoor settings:
    • shopping (retail, supermarkets and shopping centres)
    • public/shared transport, indoor entertainment (including cinemas and theatres)
    • places of worship
    • hair and beauty premises.
    • Face masks will also be mandatory for all staff in hospitality venues and casinos and for patrons using gaming services.
    • Compliance will start from Monday, 4 January 2021 with $200 on the spot fines for individuals for non-compliance. Children under 12 are exempt but are encouraged to wear masks where practicable.
  • Gym classes reduced to 30 people.
  • Places of worship and religious services limited to 1 person per 4sqm up to a maximum of 100 people per separate area.
  • Weddings and funerals limited to 1 person per 4sqm up to a maximum of 100 people.
  • Outdoor performances and protests reduced to 500 people.
  • Controlled, outdoor gatherings (seated, ticketed, enclosed) reduced to 2,000 people.
  • Night clubs not permitted.

People are still encouraged to limit non-essential gatherings and reduce their mobility where possible to further minimise the risk of transmission in the community.

Whilst these measures do not apply to areas outside Greater Sydney (including Wollongong, Central Coast and Blue Mountains), we urge all residents and visitors across the State to practise COVID safe behaviours and get tested even if symptoms are mild.

We thank the community for their patience and understanding.

Our priority is always to protect the health and safety of the community.

Tennis Centre Reopens

The rules now state that tennis is allowed – see link

Outdoor recreation activities:

If you are living or staying in the Northern Beaches, you may leave your home for outdoor recreation activities.

Outdoor recreation includes activity that supports mental, physical or emotional wellbeing. This includes picnics, golf, tennis, water-based activities (swimming, boating, jet-skiing, fishing, paddle boarding), and taking children to outdoor public playgrounds.

In the northern zone, no more than 5 northern zone residents can participate.

In the southern zone, no more than 10 southern zone residents can participate.

I have been in touch with Service NSW and they confirmed that tennis is allowed. There can be as many as 10 on a court according to them. I think we should limit it to four on a court to be safe.

On this basis I think it is ok to reopen the courts but not the Clubhouse. The new toilet can be open.

As in COVID practices used earlier in the year, all players must book a court with Scott (including club times) . Players must play then leave the area when finished.

As a result there will be no organised Club social play and no provision of balls for play. Doubles is ok, but again no organised Club social play- people will have to organise their own matches. The usual club booking rules will apply.

Update on the restrictions for the Christmas 2020 period | NSW Government

Published: 26 December 2020
Released by: The Premier

We thank the community, particularly on Sydney’s Northern Beaches, for their efforts to stop the spread of COVID-19 this Christmas period.

Modest adjustments to restrictions allowed the community to enjoy Christmas in challenging circumstances, but it is important to remember that COVID-19 may still be circulating in the community.

Taking into account updated health advice on the risk to the community from Chief Health Officer Dr Kerry Chant, the following conditions will be in place from midnight tonight until 11:59pm December 30.

For the Northern Beaches peninsula zone (North of Narrabeen Bridge, and east of the Baha’i Temple):

  • Given the ongoing risk, this area will return to ‘stay-at-home’ restrictions, with no indoor gatherings allowed.
  • Up to five people, including children, will be able to gather outdoors for exercise or recreational activity.
  • People may not enter or leave this zone.

For the remainder (southern zone) of the Northern Beaches:

  • Given the ongoing risk, this area will return to ‘stay-at-home’ restrictions, with no indoor gatherings allowed.
  • Up to 10 people, including children, will be able to gather outdoors for exercise or recreational activity.
  • People may not enter or leave this zone.

Residents of the Northern Beaches are able to leave for four permitted reasons:

  • Shopping for food or other goods and services
  • Travel for work or education purposes if unable to work from home
  • Exercise
  • Medical or caring reasons.

A Northern Beaches resident now located elsewhere in NSW is exempt from these restrictions provided it has been at least 14 days since they have been in this local government area. If it is less than 14 days, they need to follow the relevant restrictions for their area of residence, regardless of their current location, until the 14 days has elapsed. For these people, outdoor gatherings continue to be restricted to two people.

Restrictions for the Christmas 2020 period

Published: 23 December 2020

Given the current health situation on the Northern Beaches and taking into account updated health advice from Chief Health Officer Dr Kerry Chant, the Northern Beaches have been separated into two zones, and restrictions have been modestly modified for the Christmas period.

On December 24, 25 and 26, the following conditions will be in place:

For the Northern Beaches peninsula zone (North of Narrabeen Bridge, and east of the Baha’i Temple):

  • There is a new reason for leaving home: to visit the home of others who live within this zone.
  • Up to 5 visitors (total, including children) will be allowed in homes as long as they reside in the peninsula zone.
  • People may not enter or leave this zone, unless for the four approved reasons already in place.
  • On December 27, the region will revert to existing restrictions.

For the remainder (southern zone) of the Northern Beaches:

  • There is a new reason for leaving home: to visit the home of others who live within this zone.
  • Up to 10 visitors (plus primary school children and younger) will be allowed in homes. This may include people from outside this zone, not including the Northern Beaches peninsula zone.
  • People who reside outside the northern beaches are allowed to visit others in this zone.
  • Residents of this zone may not leave, unless for the four approved reasons already in place.
  • We will reassess restrictions in this zone following Boxing Day.

For the Greater Sydney region, Central Coast, Wollongong and Nepean Blue Mountains:

  • Current restrictions that were due to expire at midnight tonight will remain in place.
  • However, primary school-aged children and younger will be allowed on top of the current 10 visitors cap for homes.
  • On December 27, the region will revert to existing restrictions.

Restrictions for Regional NSW remain unchanged.

In addition, as of 1 January 2021, hospitality venues and hairdressers will be required to use the NSW Government QR code system.

Decisions on New Year’s Eve and upcoming sporting events will be made after this Christmas period.

We also want to again thank all those who are in self-isolation over the Christmas period. What you are doing is not just protecting you and your loved ones but everyone in the state of New South Wales.

It is important to remember that COVID-19 is still circulating in the community, especially when you gather with family and friends over the Christmas period.

We are urging the community to continue to play their role in controlling the spread, by getting tested if symptoms develop, practising physical distancing and good hand hygiene, and by wearing a mask, particularly indoors.

CLUB CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE PER NSW HEALTH ADVICE

Club closed until Sunday 27 December.
We will review the situation then in accordance with NSW Dept of Health / Government advice.

President MLTC
