Updated COVID-19 Restrictions – NSW (stay-at-home order)

18 June 2021

Dear Provider,

 

The purpose of the correspondence is to inform you of latest developments on COVID-19 in New South Wales.

The NSW Premier announced today that to protect the people of NSW from the evolving COVID-19 outbreak, current restrictions will be extended to at least midnight on Friday 2 July. 

  • Masks will be compulsory in all indoor non-residential settings, including workplaces, and at organised outdoor events;
  • Previous public transport capacity limits, represented by green dots, will be reintroduced;
  • If you live or work in the LGAs of Canada Bay, Inner West or Bayside, you cannot travel outside metropolitan Sydney for non-essential travel.

In addition, following updated health advice from the Chief Health Officer Dr Kerry Chant about the growing risk to the community, stay-at-home orders are being introduced for at least one week for those who live in, or whose usual place of work is in, Woollahra, Waverley, Randwick and City of Sydney Councils.

The reasons you may leave your home include:

  • Shopping for food or other essential goods and services;
  • Medical care or compassionate needs;
  • Exercise outdoors in groups of 10 or fewer;
  • Essential work, or education, where you cannot work or study from home.

 Providing services to the aged care community is considered to be essential and services should continue. Use masks, screening questions, practice hand hygiene and social distancing measures.

 

The full media release from the NSW Premier’s Office can be found here.
