RESTRICTIONS have been eased in New South Wales, Australia as Covid cases are dropping.
The announcement from State premier Gladys Berejiklian will see restrictions reduced allowing people some more freedoms.
Outdoor gatherings will be increased from 20 to 30 and hospitality venues will increase group bookings from 10 to 30.
Ms Berejiklian said.: “If it’s indoors the four-square-metre rule applies [between groups] and if its outdoors the two-square metre rule applies.”
However, some things will not be changed immediately as weddings will be allowed to have up to 300 guests but only from December 1.
“The health experts have give us advice that it could actually be safer to go to a restaurant or somewhere which is COVID-safe to have your Christmas lunch than indoors in a confined space and we want everybody to think about their plans and to plan ahead for that,” she said.
The decision to have the restrictions eased, which was made on Monday, appears to have been brought on from rigorous coronavirus testing of just under 7000 people in the 24 hours to 8pm on Sunday, highlighting that Covid cases are dropping in New South Wales.
