To Our Members,
From Monday 13 September, people across NSW who have received both doses of a COVID-19 vaccine will be allowed more freedoms.
For those who live outside the LGAs of concern, up to 5 fully vaccinated adults can engage in outdoor recreation (this does not constitute community sport) in a person’s LGA or within 5km of home. Children under 12 will not be counted in this total.
For those who live in the LGAs of concern, a household with all adults vaccinated will be able to engage in outdoor recreation (including picnics) for up to 2 hours within the existing rules (outside of curfew hours and within 5km of home). This is in addition to the ability to engage in outdoor exercise.
People who live alone can gather with one other adult to participate in outdoor recreation within the same existing rules.
Furthermore, the NSW Government made announcements relating to the stay-at-home orders lifting for some local government areas in regional NSW from 12:01am Saturday 11 September, and the release of the roadmap outlining freedoms after NSW passes the 70 per cent double vaccination target.
We advise our members to adhere to the Public Health Order.
