Places of worship are subject to the same rules. Those who are not fully vaccinated will be allowed. If you are asked to get tested for COVID-19 or self-isolate at any time, you must follow the rules, whether or not the location or exposure setting is listed on the NSW Health website. The new rules apply to all people over the age of 16. Children under the age of 16 who have not yet been vaccinated may visit the premises that have been reopened, provided that they are accompanied by an adult from their household who is fully vaccinated. Unvaccinated adults with a valid medical exemption also enjoy the freedoms. Sydney was closed on June 26 to limit the spread of the Delta variant, meaning people could only leave the house for essential reasons such as buying groceries. Rules were gradually tightened, people`s movements were limited to 5 kilometres and curfews were introduced in some areas, but the delta`s risk of infection meant that the number of new daily cases continued to rise, peaking in New South Wales on 10 September 1599. Other parts of New South Wales have also experienced shorter lockdowns to contain smaller outbreaks.
Up to 100 people can now attend the funeral, with the same rules of consumption and drink. A number of rules are changing, but it all depends on 70% of people aged 16 and over in New South Wales who will be fully vaccinated. Up to 100 people can attend the funeral, with the same rules of consumption and drink. Those who are not fully vaccinated are only allowed to attend the funeral with a maximum of 10 people. As of December 1, there will be no limits to home and informal outdoor gatherings. Capacity limits remain inside, but masks are no longer needed. Companies can impose their own rules to vaccinate customers. Pubs reopen and house gatherings are allowed from Monday, but only fully vaccinated people will enjoy the new freedoms in the first phase.
There will be more freedom along the way once 80% are fully vaccinated and from December 1, the rules for unvaccinated people will be relaxed Up to 50 people are allowed to gather outside. They all need to be vaccinated. However, people who are not fully vaccinated will be prevented from joining vaccinated people to resume community sports, meals, shopping and other activities by the deadline. Community sports are allowed to resume, while the rule of density of one person per 4 square meters remains for gyms, with classes still limited to 20. Indoor pools are always only open for organized sports or rehabilitation, not for recreation. If NSW reaches the 80% double dose target, the government intends to open up greater freedoms in terms of international travel, community sports, major events and other areas. Theme parks, racetracks, stadiums and other large leisure facilities are reopened with the rule of one person per 4 square meters, which is limited to 5,000 people. Up to 500 people can participate in outdoor events with tickets and seats. Movement restrictions across New South Wales, the country`s most populous state and the siege of Sydney, will be lifted between 11 and 1 October. In December, vaccination rates increased by 70 per cent, 80 per cent and 90 per cent.
The total number of vaccines administered in New South Wales is now 7,793,418, with 2,917,049 doses administered by NSW Health at 8pm last night and 4,876,369 by the GP network and other providers until Tuesday 7 September 2021 at 11.59pm. It remains important that anyone with symptoms or who has close or accidental contact with someone with COVID-19 be isolated and tested immediately. If screening clinics are busy, be sure to stay online, identify yourself to staff, and tell them you have symptoms or are in contact with a case. The outdoor and indoor pools will be open, but the latter is only accessible for lessons, swimming and rehabilitation activities, not for recreation. An 80-year-old man from north-west Sydney has died at Nepean Hospital. The relaxed restrictions apply to people living in Sydney`s 12 Local Government Areas – Bayside, Blacktown, Burwood, Campbelltown, Canterbury-Bankstown, Cumberland, Fairfield, Georges River, Liverpool, Parramatta, Strathfield and some suburbs of Penrith. The cap of five customers per site at the same time will be removed. Personal services must continue to respect the “One person per 4 m²” rule. Up to 10 visitors, double the previously announced limit of five, can gather at another person`s home, but all adults who normally live in the household must be fully vaccinated. Children under the age of 12 are not included in this limit.
New South Wales has achieved a vaccination coverage rate of 70% at twice the dose of the adult population and, as a result, fully vaccinated residents can emerge from lockdown. “If there is a rural town that suddenly has an outbreak of cases, we will tell people, `Don`t go to this city and not everyone in this city should leave their city`, but they can do what they are allowed to do, with 70% double dose in this city,” the prime minister said. A return for schools has been proposed, with kindergarten and grades 1 and 12 returning from October 18, and all remaining students will have to return by October 25. Discos, entertainment centers and intimate services can be opened with one person per 4 m². In nightclubs you can dance again. For fully vaccinated people, masks no longer need to be worn indoors, both in retail and hospitality as well as in offices. Retail, entertainment, personal services such as hairdressers and spas, as well as restaurants can all be operated with one person per 2 square meters with no customer ceiling. Up to 30 people can gather outside. They all need to be vaccinated. This is an increase of 10 compared to the previous ceiling. A concerted vaccination campaign has now enabled 90% of this group to receive one dose and 74% to receive two doses.
About 68% of children aged 12 to 15 have also received an injection since their eligibility. However, they must function as a bar. Dancing is prohibited, as customers can only drink while sitting. Gyms and indoor leisure facilities, including indoor pools, can be operated with unlimited capacity according to the density rule of one person per 2 m². Entertainment and information facilities will reopen according to the “one person per 4 m²” rule and a fixed capacity of 75%. These facilities usually open one person per 4 square meters and can offer courses for up to 20 people. Infections are expected to increase, but high vaccination coverage means most people don`t get seriously ill, says Catherine Bennett of Deakin University in Melbourne. “Hospitalizations in New South Wales did not reach as high a level as the models had predicted and declined faster, so that`s a good sign,” she says. Australia is entering the summer, which may also help suppress the number of cases thanks to time spent outdoors, Webster says. Last night, 156,481 COVID-19 tests were reported at 8 p.m., compared to 130,341 the day before.
These services can now work with up to 100 guests, with dancing being allowed at weddings and only eating and drinking when sitting. Berejiklian said the freedoms provided should motivate people to get vaccinated. There will be no limit to the number of visitors who can enter a household, and there will be no restrictions on informal outdoor gatherings. New South Wales` new Premier Dominic Perrottet has announced significant changes to the initial post-lockdown roadmap, announced in early September by his predecessor Gladys Berejiklian, giving fully vaccinated residents greater freedom than originally planned. If, at any time, there is a concentration of cases in a city, suburb or local government area, restrictions could be applied.
