Additional COVID-19 restrictions in place for NSW

Published: 24 Jul 2020

Businesses must comply with new public health orders targeting higher risk activities to stop the spread of COVID-19.

From 24 July 2020, new rules will be in place for businesses across the state: 

Businesses who do not comply with the public health orders will risk a fine or venue closure.

Current restrictions on gatherings will remain the same:

  • 20 guests are allowed inside a home
  • 20 guests are allowed to gather in a public place.

Minister for Customer Service Victor Dominello said inspectors will be regularly on the beat to enforce compliance.  

“Businesses that aren’t serious about safety should not be in business. Those who disregard the restrictions should expect a visit from an inspector,” Mr Dominello said.
