Lockdown restrictions tightened Additional lockdown restrictions are being introduced following a meeting of the NSW crisis cabinet. Restrictions will be placed on holiday houses. People from locked-down areas are not allowed to travel to their second homes, except under special circumstances, such as maintenance, and only one person will be able to attend. The NSW government will also introduce isolation payments for close contacts of COVID-19 positive cases forced to miss work and isolate. This payment will begin Monday. People wishing to leave Greater Sydney will need a permit to do so. Additional COVID testing clinics have also been set up across the region with other clinics extending their hours to open over the weekend.
