Greater Sydney and Central Coast COVID-19 Update

The NSW Government is re-introducing restrictions for Greater Sydney, including the Central Coast and Illawarra regions, after the state recorded two locally acquired COVID-19 cases.


The following restrictions will take effect from 5pm on Thursday 6 May and are expected to be in place until midnight Monday 10 May:

  • No more than 20 people to gather inside homes

  • Masks compulsory on public transport, all public indoor venues, such as retail, theatres, hospitals, aged care facilities and for front of house hospitality staff.
  • Drinking while standing up at indoor venues will not be allowed
  • A limit of two visitors to aged care facilities.
