Greater Sydney and New South Wales COVID-19 New Restrictions and rules

Australia is one of the few countries that successfully managed and controlled the COVID-19 and the adverse casualties it has caused worldwide. 

 Australia has implemented martinet travel rules. 

Recently, two cases (a man in his 50s on Wednesday and his wife on Thursday) of local COVID-19 transmission have been reported in Sydney East. Several authentic sources have reported that the COVID-19 infected man had no connections with hotel quarantine or overseas travel.

 As a result, how the man could have come into contact with the virus is still not determined.

Following this, Gladys Berejiklian-the New South Wales premier- announced new COVID-19 restrictions for greater Sydney. The restriction regions include Wollongong, Central Coast and the Blue Mountains. 

The newly announced restrictions were implemented from 5 PM Thursday (6th May 2021) is to proceed till 12.01 AM on Monday (10th May 2021). 

The rules and guidelines prohibit social gatherings and have made masks mandatory in public presence. 

Restrictions implemented in greater Sydney as of yesterday. 

  • No more than 20 people allowed to gather in private homes.
  • No singing or dancing in indoor venues, including places of worship and entertainment venues.
  • The only exception is weddings, where it’s recommended no more than 20 be allowed on the dance floor at a time.
  • Onstage performers can also still sing and dance.
  • Compulsory mask-wearing at all public indoor spaces, including public transport, supermarkets, hospitality venues and any indoor event.
  • Only two visitors are allowed for aged care residents and masks must be worn.
  • Drinking while standing up at indoor venues will not be allowed.

The sewage testing also disclosed the probability of the virus in Sydney’s inner west (Dulwich Hill, Summer Hill, Ashfield, Haberfield, Petersham, Lewisham, Lilyfield, Marrickville and Leichhardt). Therefore, people of these regions are also recommended testing for COVID-19 even if they have the mildest symptoms.
