NSW Premier announced, To protect NSW people from the evolving COVID-19 outbreak, current restrictions will be extended to at least midnight on Friday 2 July.
In addition, As per the health advice from the Chief Health Officer Dr Kerry Chant about the growing risk to the community, stay-at-home orders are being introduced for at least one week for those who live in, or whose usual place of work is in, Woollahra, Waverley, Randwick and City of Sydney Councils.
Due to the risk associated with an increasing number of exposure venues where transmission has occurred, from 11.59 pm tonight until at least 11.59 pm on Friday 2 July, residents of, or people whose usual place of work is in, the four LGAs must stay at home unless it is for an essential reason.
The four reasons you may leave your home include:
- Shopping for food or other essential goods and services;
- Medical care or compassionate needs;
- Exercise outdoors in groups of 10 or fewer;
- Essential work, or education, where you cannot work or study from home.
Premier Gladys Berejiklian said, “I understand this is a difficult time for everyone, however, we need to take these steps now to get on top of this outbreak.”
People should only enter the four LGAs for essential purposes.
“if you live or work in the City of Sydney, Waverley, Randwick, Canada Bay, Inner West, Bayside, and Woollahra local government areas, you cannot travel outside metropolitan Sydney for non-essential reasons.”
Residents across greater Sydney should also limit unnecessary activity and avoid large gatherings in coming days and comply with the current restrictions.
