NSW Records 44 New COVID-19 Cases As Sydney Restrictions Tighten; Pfizer vaccine distribution is advanced

The ACT has tightened its travel restrictions in Sydney in light of the city’s growing COVID-19 epidemic.

Starting at midnight tonight, anyone entering the territory and having stayed in Greater Sydney, the Blue Mountains, the Central Coast, Wollongong or Shellharbour will be subject to strict quarantine for 14 days.

Currently, those authorized to enter from Greater Sydney are subject to stay-at-home orders and are allowed to leave their homes for essential purposes.

But after midnight that will change, meaning people entering affected areas of NSW will only be able to leave their homes in an emergency or for essential medical care. Other activities, such as going to work, studying, buying food or exercising, will not be allowed.

People entering ACT, including residents, must also complete an exemption online before their trip.

“Non-ACT residents continue to be unable to enter ACT without an approved exemption,” an ACT Health statement said.

“In light of the increased risk posed by the spread of COVID-19 in Greater Sydney, ACT exemptions will only be approved in very exceptional circumstances.

“If people do not have suitable premises to self-quarantine, they will have to self-quarantine in a hotel at their own expense. ”

The mask’s mandate will also be revoked at midnight.
