COVID-19 restrictions in regional NSW and Greater Sydney have been extended until 16 July 2021.
The restrictions for regional NSW include limits on the number of visitors people can have at home, and mandatory mask-wearing on public transport, in non-residential indoor areas (including workplaces), at airports and on commercial flights.
Due to the evolving COVID-19 outbreak in Sydney, everyone in Greater Sydney must stay home unless they have a reasonable excuse. Stay at home rules and restrictions apply to people who live in, usually work in, or usually attend a university or other tertiary education facility in Greater Sydney (including the Blue Mountains, Central Coast, Wollongong and Shellharbour).
Anyone who has been in the Greater Sydney region, on or after Monday 21 June, must follow the stay-at-home rules for 14 days after leaving Greater Sydney, unless exempt. It is important for anyone who has visited Greater Sydney since 21 June to regularly review the case locations and follow the relevant health advice.
