(AUSTRALIA) #Coronavirus Report: #COVID19 restrictions will be re-introduced across Greater Sydney in response to an eastern suburbs couple in their 50s testing positive to the virus #AceHealthDesk report

Sydney, Australia 🇦🇺

#AceHealthReport – May.08: Although “disease detectives” know the man contracted the virus from a returning traveller at the Park Royal at Darling Harbour, there was no direct contact between that man and the traveller so there is still a missing link.

#CoronavirusNewsDesk – Sydney’s new #COVID19 restrictions mean masks are in, dancing is out and added restrictions will be in place for at least three days while the state is on high alert and contact tracing continues’

When do the restrictions begin?

The restrictions were legally enforceable from 5.00pm on Thursday but Premier Gladys Berejiklian asked people to abide by the new rules as soon as they heard about them.

At this stage, they lift at 12.01am Monday morning.

The measures will be in effect for the Greater Sydney region, which includes Wollongong, the Central Coast and the Blue Mountains.

What are the restrictions?

Household visitors have been cut to a maximum of 20 guests, including children.

Masks are again compulsory on public transport.

They’re also compulsory in all indoor public venues, like retail outlets, theatres, hospitals, aged care facilities and for front-of-house hospitality staff.

Visitors to aged care facilities will be limited to two people.

What about venues?

When eating or drinking at a hospitality venue, you’re allowed to remove your mask.

But you can no longer stand and drink in an indoor venue. 

Dancing at indoor venues is also banned again except if you’re at a wedding where it’s strongly recommended that no more than 20 people are on the dance floor at any one time.

Singing by audiences at indoor shows or by congregants at indoor places of worship is also not allowed.

What about my Mother’s Day plans?

Ms Berejiklian has made it clear she still wants people to celebrate Mother’s Day on Sunday and said there was no need to cancel plans to go out.

“We’ve been very careful not to impact unnecessarily businesses and others who might have already made arrangements over the weekend,” she said.

“But we do ask citizens and workers to be extra cautious and adopt that compulsory mask wearing.”

She also stressed the hygiene protocols we’ve all become accustomed to must be followed.

“We also want to make sure people are just sensible,” she said.

“Make sure you maintain your good social distancing, make sure you avoid large events if you’re vulnerable and make sure you exhibit good hygiene.”
