Restrictions to ease further in NSW on Saturday

Restrictions to ease further in NSW on Saturday

A number of restrictions will be eased in NSW from this Saturday, 13 June, as the State's businesses continue to reopen with COVID-safe practices implemented.

From Saturday food courts will be allowed to reopen, the number of people allowed to visit homes will be increased from five to 20, and the number of people allowed to gather outdoors will be increased from 10 to 20.

"NSW acted quickly to introduce restrictions to tackle the spread of COVID-19 and I am determined for us to move as quickly as possible out of them," says NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian.

"We have been a world leader in dealing with COVID-19 and I want us to be an example on how to reopen an economy in a COVID-safe way."

Berejiklian says the next raft of changes to COVID-19 restrictions will be implemented from 1 July.

Food courts that do reopen on Saturday must have a COVID-safe plan implemented, including: abiding by the four square metre rule, a maximum of 50 people per separate seated eating area, and enhanced hygiene and cleaning processes.

The announcement comes as NSW has gone two full weeks without detecting a single case of community transmission of COVID-19.
