Under current lockdown measures, people in Greater Sydney are not allowed to travel more than 10 km from their homes and are prohibited from traveling to the regions.
People from regional NSW cannot travel to Sydney, the Blue Mountains, the Central Coast, Wollongong or to Shellharbour unless they have a “reasonable excuse” such as Getting a Covid vaccine or attending a funeral.
“If you enter these areas for any reason, the residence rules also apply to you for 14 days after you were last in one of these areas,” says the website NSW Health.
“This means you will have to stay at your place of residence for 14 days, even if it is in a regional area, unless you have a reasonable excuse.”
NSW recorded a staggering increase in cases on Friday with 97 new infections, 29 of which were contagious in the community.
“This is the number (that is),” said NSW Prime Minister Gladys Berejiklian.
“The number of people who are contagious in society continues to rise. We really want to stress to everyone. Stay home, follow the order.
Friday’s coronavirus numbers also include 34 people whose source of infection is unknown.
“We have a number of cases under investigation and we are seeing the emergence of non-coherent cases that are of concern,” said NSW Health Chief Kerry Chant.
