People in Sydney are being told to wear masks and practice social distancing measures as a mystery case is recorded in Sydney.
The new rules come in at 5pm today, for greater Sydney, Wollongong, Central Coast and Blue Mountains.
The rules will also limit households to 20 guests, mask will be compulsory at indoor public venues and public transport; Drinking at venues only while seated, singing in groups or congregations will not be allowed, dancing not allowed in venues.
Sydney’s Fratelli Fresh restaurant inside Westfield Sydney on Pitt St, and Bondi Beach restaurant Bondi Trattoria have been marked as venues of concern while NSW Health continues its investigation.
It’s believed the man in his 50s who contracted Covid-19 in Eastern Suburbs of Sydney, may have somehow picked it up from a person who had been in hotel quarantine from the USA.
People are asked to check if they attended these venues at these times in Sydney and must get tested, isolate if they did.
In responding to the new rules, Premier Gladys Berejiklian said “it’s a very proportionate response. In other states they would have locked down the whole city, closed businesses…We’re not doing any of that.” “If this was WA or QLD, they would have shut down the whole city.”
