New Public Health Order released


A remade Public Health Order easing a number of restrictions came into effect today, subject to strict social distancing rules. From today, the new rules keeping the State COVIDSafe mean:

  • The number of people allowed inside indoor venues will be determined by the ‘one person per 4 square metre’ rule, with no upper limit. This includes function centres. All activity must be seated only.

  • Cultural and sporting events at outdoor venues with a maximum capacity of 40,000 will be allowed up to 25 percent of their normal capacity. Events must be ticketed and seated and follow strict guidelines.

  • On compassionate grounds, restrictions on funerals will immediately be eased to allow the four-square-metre rule to apply.

  • All other restrictions including 20 guests inside the home and 20 for outside gatherings remain the same.

The four-square-metre rule must be applied at all times, along with completion of COVIDSafe plans. More information on what is permissible can also be found here.


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 until an alternate system of author verification can be investigated and hopefully installed.

Those 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 for ease. The primary need for all of this is due to traceability should a legal action arise.
