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
