Hospitality businesses receiving emails about changes to COVID Safe rules
On 19 November, the NSW Government sent an email to some NSW businesses about changes to mandatory COVID Safety rules for the hospitality industry that come into effect on Monday 23 November.
This email was sent in error to some businesses.
- If you received an email incorrectly stating that your business is not yet registered as COVID Safe and your business is already registered as COVID Safe you don’t need to do anything further.
- If you are an alcohol retailer, such as a bottle shop, that received the email, note that you are not affected by the new mandatory COVID Safe rules for the hospitality industry. You do not need to register as COVID Safe or check-in customers electronically.
Bottle shops are still encouraged to look after the health of their customers and staff by completing and implementing a COVID-19 Safety Plan.
See more information about which businesses are required to set up mandatory electronic customer check-in by Monday 23 November.
