Due to the risk of Coronavirus and acting on direction of NSW and Federal Governments, there are restrictions in place in many public areas. View the latest updates on the evolving situation with Coronavirus (COVID-19).

In addition, it is against the law to gather with more than ten people in public, except:

  • for members of the same household
  • where the gathering is essential for work or education

If you go out, stay 1.5 metres away from other people at all times.

The rules are also now enforceable and Police are issuing fines of $1000 for individuals and $5000 for companies. These are difficult circumstances and we appreciate your patience and understanding.
