Covid Lockdown Update 26 June 2021
The NSW government has announced a strict lockdown for all of Greater Sydney, the Blue Mountains, the Central Coast and Wollongong from 6pm Saturday until midnight Friday, July 9.
Premier Gladys Berejiklian said there was no point in having a limited three or five-day lockdown because “it wouldn’t have done the job”.
Residents and people who have worked in Woollahra, Waverley, Randwick and City of Sydney in the past two weeks have been subject to a stay-at-home order since 11.59pm Friday.
Due to the risk associated with an increasing number of venues where transmission has occurred, this order has been expanded to all of Greater Sydney, the Blue Mountains, the Central Coast and Wollongong until Friday, July 9.
People will only be allowed to leave their homes for one of four reasons.
Shopping for food or other essential goods and services;
Medical care or compassionate needs;
Exercise outdoors in groups of 10 or fewer; and
Essential work, or education, where you cannot work or study from home.
Anyone in regional NSW who has been in Greater Sydney since June 21 must also stay at home and isolate in order to stop the virus from spreading through the regions.
