COVID-19 Safety Plans
Update on Northern Rivers restrictions
Temporary restrictions in the Byron, Tweed, Ballina and Lismore areas have been lifted. All of NSW now has one set of COVID-19 rules for what you can do.
If required, complete the relevant COVID-19 Safety Plan for your business, venue, organisation or event, keep a copy of your plan, and provide it to an authorised person when asked.
Your COVID-19 Safety Plan must address the matters required by the approved COVID-19 Safety Checklist.
The plans set out what businesses and organisations need to do to fulfil their obligations under public health orders and minimise risk of transmission of COVID-19 on their premises.
COVID Safe is a statewide program that helps to keep our community safe from COVID-19.
We want your feedback on how businesses are implementing COVID safety rules.
Under the public health orders, it is mandatory for some types of business to complete a COVID-19 Safety Plan.
Authorised officers are making inspections of businesses to check compliance and are able to issue on-the-spot fines.
Penalties for breaching public health orders range up to $55,000, with a further $27,500 penalty possible for each day an offence continues.
For repeated non-compliance, businesses may be shut down for periods of up to a month.
