Lockdown Areas Extended
From 6pm today lockdown begins for Greater Sydney, the Blue Mountains, the Central Coast and Wollongong, and will continue till 11:59 Friday the 9th of July.
People in these areas can only leave home for the following four reasons:
- Shopping for food or other essential goods and services
- Medical care or compassionate needs (including to get a COVID-19 vaccine)
- Exercise outdoors in groups of 10 or fewer
- Essential work, or education, where you cannot work or study from home
These enhanced measures include the cancellation of community sport. For Bicycle NSW Members and riders in the impacted areas, you can still exercise in groups of 10 but in line with yesterday’s advice, please bring a mask and ensure you stay COVID-safe.
“Not only do we appreciate your efforts, but government and health staff have expressed their appreciation for your support to control the pandemic,” said Bicycle NSW General Manager of Public Affairs, Bastien Wallace.
NSW Health has provided clear guidelines here for the current restrictions that are in place.
