NSW post-Christmas virus rules announced on Boxing Day

NSW has announced it will revert back to restrictions in place before Christmas.

NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian has announced what virus restrictions will be in place in the state following Christmas.

Speaking at a press conference on Boxing Day, Ms Berejiklian said that restrictions both in the Northern Beaches and Greater Sydney would revert back to what they were before December 23.

She said there was one difference compared to the stay at home rules prior to Christmas.

Those in the northern part of the Northern Beaches – north of the Narrabeen Bridge – are allowed to have five people at an outdoor gathering but not allowed to have anyone at indoor gatherings.

Those in the southern part of the Northern Beaches are allowed to have 10 people at an outdoor gathering.

Over Christmas people in the northern region were allowed to have five visitors at their homes, while people in the south could have 10 guests at their homes.

Those in Greater Sydney also revert back to the rules of December 23, with no more than 10 people allowed in a household.

Ms Berejiklian said people from the northern part of the Northern Beaches should not go to the southern part and vice versa, “unless you absolutely have to”.

“If you’re in Greater Sydney, do not go to the Northern Beaches,” she said.

The restrictions will last until midnight on December 30, leaving the possibility open for restrictions to change for New Year’s Eve.

“In the next few days we’ll let people know what New Year’s Eve looks like,” Ms Berejiklian said.

“Our strategy is to nip this in the bud as soon as we can.”

The new rules come into effect from 12.01am on December 27.

The lack of restrictions in regional NSW continues, Ms Berejiklian said.

It comes after NSW recorded nine new virus cases on Saturday.
