Restrictions to be lifted from June 1st in NSW
With the restrictions that will be lifted from June 1st in New South Wales, it is expected that certain sectors of the economy such as tourism, hospitality, among others, will be reactivated step by step during the times of COVID-19.
As the NSW community becomes more active and returns to business, it is important that safety measures continue to be taken, such as social distancing and good hygiene.
These are the next changes that will take place:
Travel to regional NSW for vacations
Starting Monday, June 1st, 2020, travel restrictions will be lifted so residents can take a vacation anywhere in NSW.
Prime Minister Gladys Berejiklian and Deputy Prime Minister John Barilaro of New South Wales, said citizens will be able to take recreational trips through the regional NSW, as long as they maintain social distancing and good hygiene.
Furthermore, this will help companies and industry to revive their economy again.
"I must emphasise to everyone that, while we want people to enjoy a well-deserved vacation, we must do this responsibly and continue to comply with physical distance measures, since the last thing we want are new outbreaks that force us to reintroduce restrictions". Prime Minister of NSW, Gladys Berejiklian
Travellers should call ahead and confirm reservations, while travellers planning to visit national parks should consult the NSW National Park and Wildlife Service for more information.
Interstate highway travellers will be able to visit NSW during vacations beginning June 1st, 2020, but must comply with their home state regulations upon return.
Museums, galleries and libraries:
Museums, galleries and libraries will reopen across New South Wales starting on June 1st, 2020, under relief from restrictions announced by the NSW Government.
«We cautiously invite our cultural institutions and libraries across New South Wales to reopen from June 1st, 2020, but with strict new protocols,» said Berejiklian.
NSW Health will provide guidance to ensure that museums, galleries, and libraries operate safely during COVID-19:
- Exclusion of staff and visitors who are not well.
- Limitation on the number of guests to allow the distance of 4 square meters per person.
- Use of distance markers for people queuing at service points.
- Ensure that facilities are adequate so that visitors can wash and disinfect their hands.
- Online ticketing system for museums and galleries.
- Request for returns within 24 hours for libraries.
Pubs, clubs, cafes and restaurants:
Within the restrictions that will be lifted from June 1st, 2020, the Government of New South Wales will allow pubs, clubs, cafes and restaurants to have up to 50 customers at a time, subject to the rule of one person for every four square meters and with strict guidelines for social distancing.
- Places must follow the four-square-meter rule.
- All customers must be seated and liquor can be sold without food.
- Customers should preferably book in advance to avoid queues.
- Maximum of 10 clients per reservation.
New South Wales Prime Minister Gladys Berejiklian said the move was intended to recover thousands of jobs safely.
«There are around 280,000 people employed in this sector of the economy, and allowing venues to safely serve more customers will provide another boost to business and jobs,» Perrottet said.
Nail and beauty services:
Nail and beauty salons can begin operating on June 1st under strict security guidelines against COVID-19.
