NSW health officials have announced a huge easing of restrictions as the state hits its 38th day with no local cases of COVID-19.
Limits on gatherings inside homes and dancefloors at weddings are among the restrictions NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian has eased across the state.
NSW recorded a 38th consecutive day on no locally acquired cases of COVID-19 while the Pfizer vaccine rollout continues.
On Wednesday, Ms Berejiklian revealed 50 people will now be allowed inside a private home, up from the current limit of 30.
“Please remember this comes with risk; make sure there is good ventilation and good social distancing,” she told media.
Weddings will now be allowed to have 30 people on the dancefloor and the premier said health officials will look into relaxing the current cap of 300.
Singers who are performing indoors will also be increased to 30, up from five, providing they obey physical distancing requirements.
“If things continue to go well, we will re-evaluate the 300 cap … we are looking to ease that in the next three weeks or so,” she said.
Gyms will also be allowed to 50 people in classes, up from 30, providing the gym adheres to the one person per for sqm rule.
Punters at pubs and restaurants may also be allowed to stand up and have a drink if the state continues to record no local cases of COVID-19…
