NSW recorded no new local coronavirus cases in the latest 24-hour period, as the state announced it would be pressing on with easing restrictions after this was delayed last week.
Under the new restrictions, from this Friday:
- Thirty people can gather outdoors, up from 20
- Group bookings at restaurants can be as large as 30 people, up from 10. Hospitality venues can also host 30 people at a table.
Corporate functions can now be held for up to 300 people and this capacity level will be extended to weddings from December 1.
The four-square-metre rule for indoor venues and the two-square-metre rule for outdoor venues remain in place, Premier Gladys Berejiklian clarified.
The Premier said larger group bookings would hopefully help families with their Christmas and summer holiday plans.
