‘Lockdown at a lighter level’: Health Minister details exceptions for sport, weddings
NSW Health Minister Brad Hazzard has detailed the new public health orders, responding to Sydneysiders’ questions and concerns.
He told Jim Wilson the stay-at-home orders, which come into force for the Waverley, Woollahra, City of Sydney and Randwick LGAs at midnight, are “a lockdown at a lighter level”.
“It’s a bit like the northern beaches, a lot of it’s the same as what happened over Christmas/New Year.”
Mr Hazzard said there are “important exceptions” to the lockdown.
Weddings and funerals can continue in the four LGAs, and people can travel to and from the event from anywhere, provided they don’t detour via other venues.
Community sport can also go ahead this weekend.
