Breaking: NSW Pubs and Clubs will be able to open on Friday, the Treasurer confirmed tonight.
Yes, that means you’ll be able to enjoy a cold frosty one on tap.
The NSW Government will allow pubs and clubs in the state to reopen from Friday. Up to 10 patrons will be allowed inside clubs and pubs to sit down and dine.
Restaurants and cafes in pubs and clubs will be able to open so long as they adhere to social-distancing requirements.
Bars and gaming facilities will remain closed, however table service for alcohol with a meal will be allowed.
Takeaway services can continue to operate as at present.
“This is an important first step, and we want it to be a success, so that as venues transition back from closure they do so safely both for their staff and their customers,” Treasurer Dominic Perrottet said.
