Roadmap to freedom

The NSW Government has released a 'roadmap to freedom' which outlines easing of restrictions for adults who have received both doses of the COVID-19 vaccine. 

Read the latest roadmap to freedom here. Or here for translated information.

Restrictions ease further Monday 8th Nov

From Monday 8 November eased restrictions allow those who are fully vaccinated (or valid medical exemption) to have:

  • no cap on home visitors
  • no cap on outdoor gathering numbers under 1000 people

All business premises will operate at 1 person per 2sqm indoors and outdoors.

Caps will be removed for settings other than gym and dance classes (where the 20 person cap for classes will remain) and replaced by density limits or 100 per cent fixed seated capacity for major recreation outdoor facilities (including stadiums, racecourses, theme parks and zoos) and entertainment facilities (including cinemas and theatres).

COVID Safe check-ins and proof of vaccination will still be required.

Those who are not fully vaccinated must still abide by pre-roadmap restrictions until the State reaches the 95 per cent double vaccination target, or 15 December, whichever happens first.

Masks continue to be mandatory for people over the age of 12 on public transport and in many indoors areas unless eating or drinking.  

Restrictions are changing regularly so be sure to check the full, up-to-date list of NSW restrictions here

Increased hygiene protocols

Remember the most effective things you can do is to practice social distancing (stay 1.5m from others) and good hygiene.
