Further restrictions to ease from Saturday


COVID-19 restrictions are set to ease again this weekend.

From this Saturday 13 June, NSW will further ease restrictions, with food courts allowed to reopen, the number of people allowed to visit homes increased from 5 to 20, and the number of people allowed to gather outdoors also increased to 20.

Premier Gladys Berejiklian said these changes are another step towards seeing NSW reopen in a COVID-safe way. 

“NSW acted quickly to introduce restrictions to tackle the spread of COVID-19 and I am determined for us to move as quickly as possible out of them,” Ms Berejiklian said. 

“We have been a world leader in dealing with COVID-19 and I want us to be an example on how to reopen an economy in a COVID-safe way.

“We will shortly have more to say on easing further restrictions across the state from 1 July, which will keep as many people in jobs as possible.”

Health Minister Brad Hazzard said every decision the NSW Government is making in relation to easing restrictions is informed by health advice.

“NSW has now gone two full weeks without detecting a single case of recent community transmission of COVID-19 – this is a testament to the hard work of the community,” Mr Hazzard said. 

“The cooperation of the public and business, and our high rates of testing, remain our greatest weapons to stamping out community transmission so it’s vital people continue to come forward.”
