From Friday 15 May, the following activities will be allowed in NSW:

• outdoor gatherings of up to 10 people • cafes and restaurants can seat 10 patrons at any one time • up to 5 visitors to a household at any one time • weddings up to 10 guests • indoor funerals up to 20 mourners, outdoor funerals up to 30 • religious gatherings/places of worship up to 10 worshippers • use of outdoor equipment with caution • outdoor pools open with restrictions.

Continue to practise physical distancing and good hygiene. If you have even the mildest symptoms, you should stay at home. Is local and regional travel allowed for holidays and recreation in NSW?

No. NSW is not yet ready to allow regional travel and holidays.  It is important that as restrictions are eased precautions must be taken to prevent outbreaks in regional and rural communities and so holidays and recreational travel are not allowed at this time. NSW Health will update the community when this changes. Read more about how public health orders affect what you can and can't do at

COMMENTS : Due to the risks associated with comments from unidentified contributors that expose The Beagle to possible legal actions under the NSW Defamation Act 2005 No 77 anonymous or Nom de Plume comments will not be available unless the author is known to the editor by way of a verified email address or by association.

Others who provide their REAL NAME (first name AND Surname) and a verifiable email address (it won't be published) are invited to comment below. (yes it is a pain but please comply - it would be a  shame to see your comment deleted)

Those contributors KNOWN to us and verified may continue to use their First Name or Nom de plume for ease. The primary need for all of this is due to traceability should a legal action arise.
