Further COVID-19 Restrictions Set To Ease From July 1

June 14, 2020

The NSW Government has announced the next stage of easing restrictions will come into effect in the state on Wednesday July 1.

Changes from July 1:

  • Removal of upper limit allowed inside indoor venues. Capacity will now be deterimined only by the ‘one person per 4 square metre’ rule. Patrons must be seated.
  • Cultural and sporting events at outdoor venues with a maximum capacity over 40,000 will be allowed up to 25% of normal capacity. Events must be ticketed and seated.
  • Restrictions on funerals will immediately be eased to allow the four square metre rule to apply.

All other restrictions, including the limit of 20 guests inside the home and 20 for outside gatherings remain the same.

Music festivals and nightclubs will continue to be closed in July as the health advice remains that these venues and activities pose a high risk of the virus spreading. It is anticipated that restrictions will be eased further in August if community transmission of the virus remains low.
