Residents of NSW have an easing of a number of restrictions in relation to Covid-19
It is no longer essential to wear masks outdoors or at some indoor activities. However, it is still recommended if you are in a position that you are unable to socially distance. This is for the fully vaccinated or unvaccinated alike. You are also no longer required to carry vaccination evidence.
These two changes alone will allow us to enjoy Christmas and New Year with family and friends, which I am sure we are all looking forward to.
There are a couple of areas that will require evidence of vaccination, including Education, Care and Transport Workers, and we have provided a link that will provide further information on this.
Want to Travel? If you are using public transport or taking a flight you will still be required to wear a mask while waiting for or on public transport, at airports and on planes. Traveling with New South Wales has no restrictions between Great Sydney, Regional and Rural New South Wales for holiday or recreational travel.
If you are traveling out of state please remember to check the guidelines relevant to that state or territory.
There are new rules in place for international travel and this link will provide the information you need if you are lucky enough to be heading overseas or returning home. The main thing to remember is that if you are traveling back to Australia from overseas and are not fully vaccinated you will be required to go into 14-day mandatory quarantine.
Visiting a hospitality venues will be easier as there is no limit of patrons, you can now stand to have a drink and there are no masks required except for front of house staff who are not fully vaccinated.
