Covid-19 – Community Information

UPDATED 30 November 2021

The NSW Government has updated the roadmap for easing restrictions after the State reaches the 95 per cent double dose vaccination target, or 15 December, whichever comes first.

Adjustments to previous settings scheduled for this milestone include:

  • Masks will only be required on public transport and planes, at airports, and for indoors front-of-house hospitality staff who are not fully vaccinated (previously all indoors front-of-house hospitality staff regardless of vaccination status). Masks will be strongly encouraged in settings where you cannot social distance;
  • No density limits (previously one person per 2sqm);
  • COVID safety plans will be optional for businesses and will be supported by SafeWork NSW;
  • QR check-ins will only be required at high-risk venues including hospitals, aged and disability care facilities, gyms, places of worship, funerals or memorial services, personal services (e.g. hairdressers and beauty salons), limited hospitality settings (including pubs, small bars, registered clubs and nightclubs), and for indoor music festivals with more than 1,000 people; and
  • Proof of vaccination will no longer be required by Public Health Order for most activities (businesses can still require proof at their own discretion). Proof of vaccination will still be required for indoor music festivals with more than 1,000 people.

With more than 92 per cent of people over 16 vaccinated as at 25 November, NSW is continuing to take measured approach to reopening.

To maintain high levels of immunity across the community, NSW Health is rolling out a booster vaccination program at its clinics to individuals aged 18 and older who received their second dose of a COVID-19 vaccine six months or more ago.

UPDATED 10 November 2021

From Monday 8 November 2021 eased COVID-19 restrictions will allow those who are fully vaccinated to have:

  • no capacity limits for major recreation and entertainment facilities
  • no limits to the number of visitors to your home
  • no booking limits for restaurants and hospitality.

However, COVID-Safe check-ins and proof of vaccination will still be required for staff and customers in most settings.

Density limits of 1 person per 2sqm indoor and outdoor areas apply to a range of activities.
