Following a Press Conference today the NSW Government has released its updated Easing Restrictions at 80% full vaccination.
From the Monday after NSW hits the 80% (aged 16 and over) double-dose vaccination target, eased restrictions will allow those who are fully vaccinated to have:
Exercise and recreation
Gyms, indoor recreation and sporting facilities reopen with density limits and up to 20 people in classes.
Indoor swimming pools reopen for lessons only.
Community sports permitted for fully vaccinated staff, spectators and participants.
All premises will operate at 1 person per 4sqm indoors and 1 person per 2sqm outdoors.
People under the age of 16 who are not fully vaccinated are allowed unaccompanied in their workplaces and all outdoor settings, but must be with a fully vaccinated member of their household in hospitality venues (unless collecting takeaways), entertainment facilities, major recreation facilities and places of worship.
Craig Roberts, General Manager for Drowning Prevention and Education at Royal Life Saving said "We welcome this revised postion frI’m the NSW Government. This is an excellent outcome for the NSW Community allowing children and adults to get back into water and enrol in essential swimming and water safety lessons before the summer season begins".
"This is a much needed boost for the Aquatic Industry with an estimated 25,000 staff and 250 facilities now able to open thier doors in October."
