The NSW Government have made adjustments to the pandemic settings as precautionary steps to maintain our safe and measured approach to COVID-19.
The following adjustments will come into effect:
• Masks will be compulsory in all indoor non-residential settings, including for hospitality staff and in offices, unless eating or drinking from 12.01am Friday, 24 December
• QR code check-ins will be compulsory, including for hospitality and retail from 12.01am Monday, 27 December 2021
• Hospitality venues, including pubs, clubs, restaurants and cafes will move to 1 person per 2 sqm rule indoors, with no density limit for outdoor settings from 12.01am Monday, 27 December 2021
All settings will remain in place until Thursday, 27 January 2022.
QR check-in requirements are a reminder that if you receive a notification you should get tested if you feel unwell. You should also get tested if directed by NSW Health or if you have symptoms.
Reduce mingling where you can including when eating and drinking, work from home where possible and hold events outside.
Rapid-Antigen Test kits will soon be made available for free across the State as an additional testing option and to allow those who need to get a PCR test to do so.
