Dear <<First Name>>.

Infections from the Coronavirus outbreak in Bondi have continued to grow. In response, the NSW Government has strengthened restrictions.

COVID-19 cases linked to the cluster have made their way to South-West Sydney with infections reported in West Hoxton and Casula at the time of writing. 

If you have even the mildest symptoms, such as headache, fatigue, cough, sore throat or runny nose, get tested immediately, then isolate until you receive a negative result.

Please keep safe and follow the health orders. You can stay updated with the latest advice via the NSW Government website here.

As with previous outbreaks, if we remain vigilant we will get this virus under control.

Kind Regards

Anne

Wear a Mask

If you are in Greater Sydney, or you have been in Greater Sydney in the last 14 days, you must wear a face mask:

  • Over your nose and mouth
  • When you are indoors at non-residential premises, including workplaces.

You must also wear a mask at a COVID-safe outdoor gathering or controlled outdoor public gatherings. The face mask rules page gives advice on when you can remove your mask.

In addition to those rules, you can also remove your mask when you are:

  • Doing strenuous exercise (except when you are in a gym class, or a dance class at an indoor recreation facility)
  • At a correctional centre, place of custody, or hospital
  • In a school or early education and care facility
  • A resident at an aged care facility
  • A guest in a hotel/motel room and in your room
  • On a construction site
  • In the process of getting married working alone in an office (until another person enters)
  • In a vehicle alone or with another person from your household.

Workplaces

Employers must allow an employee to work from home if it is reasonably practical to do so.

If you go to your workplace, you must wear a face mask (unless an exemption applies).

Visitors allowed at a residence

In Greater Sydney, up to 5 visitors may visit another household at any one time. The total number of visitors includes adults and children (a member of the hosting household is not counted as a visitor).

  • There is no daily limit to visitors to your home, so long as you do not have more than 5 visitors at any one time.
  • If you are over 70 or have a pre-existing medical condition, you should limit the number of visitors and take care at all times.
  • An overnight stay as part of a visit to someone’s house is allowed.

As a host, it is your responsibility to ensure that no more than 5 people visit your household at any one time.

As a visitor, it is your responsibility to ensure that you do not visit a residence if there are more than 5 people there.

Business Capacity limits in Greater Sydney

If your premises has a COVID-19 Safety Plan, you can have:

These capacity limits do not apply to your home, major outdoor recreation facilities (such as stadiums), entertainment facilities (such as cinemas) commercial activities on vessels, caravan parks and campgrounds, holiday homes and short-term rentals, and other exempted gatherings.

When calculating the capacity of your premises

  • Only include the areas of your premises that are open to the public
  • Do not include your staff, people attending an emergency, or people who are on the premises to collect take away food in your calculations

Singing

Singing by audiences at indoor shows or at places of worship is not allowed.

You may only sing in non-residential indoor premises if:

  • The singers are performers and they are performing or rehearsing
  • The premises are an educational establishment
  • It is part of a singing lesson.

Dancing

Dancing is not allowed at a hospitality venue or nightclub. Hospitality venues include casinos, food and drink premises, micro-breweries, small bars, pubs, and clubs.

For weddings, dancing is allowed at weddings for the bridal party only (no more than 20 people).

Gyms and indoor recreational facilities

A 20-person limit applies to classes or activities at a gym.

Dance classes, or any other activities such as a yoga class, also have a limit of 20 people.

If you are participating in a dance class or gym class, you must wear a face mask.

Service of alcohol

You must be seated when consuming alcohol in an indoor area of non-residential premises in Greater Sydney. This includes hospitality venues (such as restaurants, pubs and registered clubs) and nightclubs, as well as outdoor gatherings or stadiums.

Do Not Visit Aged Care Factilties

People in Greater Sydney are also urged not to visit residential aged care facilities, disability services or vulnerable people unless it is critical. 

I strongly recommend avoiding aged care facilities in our area as the virus may be in the community and aged care facilities are particularly high risk and vulnerable.

Get Tested!

Anyone in Greater Sydney with even the mildest symptoms, such as headache, fatigue, cough, sore throat or runny nose, should come forward immediately for testing, then isolate until they receive a negative result.

There are more than 300 COVID-19 testing locations across NSW, many of which are open seven days a week. Click here to find your nearest clinic or contact your GP.
