NSW has further eased restrictions for the fully vaccinated from Monday 18 October, with the State reaching its 80 per cent vaccination target over the weekend.

The Government has also announced recreational regional travel will be permitted from 1 November for the fully vaccinated.

Under the eased restrictions in place from 18 October:

  • up to 20 visitors (excluding children 12 and under) allowed in a home
  • up to  50 people for outdoor gatherings (2-person limit for people not fully vaccinated)
  • up to 3,000 people will be allowed to attend controlled and ticketed outdoor events
  • up to 200 people can attend COVID Safe outdoor events, with up to 500 people can attend major recreation facilities (including stadiums, theme parks, and racecourses)

  • masks will no longer be required in office buildings.
  • nightclubs permitted to reopen, with seated drinking and no dancing permitted
  • community sport is allowed for fully vaccinated staff, spectators and participants – capacity limits apply

All premises will operate at 1 person per 4sqm indoors and 1 person per 2sqm outdoors.

Those under the age of 16 who are not fully vaccinated are allowed unaccompanied in their workplaces and all outdoor settings, but must be with a fully vaccinated member of their household in hospitality venues (unless collecting takeaways), entertainment facilities,

major recreation facilities and places of worship, unless they work at the venue.

From 1 November:

  • group bookings for hospitality venues will no longer be capped at 20 people.
  • travel for holidays and recreational visits including day trips between Greater Sydney (including Central Coast, Wollongong, Shellharbour and Blue Mountains) and regional NSW will be permitted for those who are fully vaccinated

For settings in regional NSW with vaccination requirements for staff and customers, staff can return to work from 11 October if they have had at least 1 dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, but must be fully vaccinated by 1 November 2021. Regional travel will not be allowed (unless for authorised purposes with an appropriate permit) until 1 November. Regional areas are those outside Greater Sydney, the Blue Mountains, Wollongong, Shellharbour and the Central Coast.

The Government said the roadmap may be further fine-tuned by NSW Health as the COVID-19 situation is monitored over coming weeks.
