Gatherings and work – New South Wales

Current as of 14 July 2020, at 15:30 AEST

Up to 20 visitors — including children — can visit another household at one time. You can have as many visitors as you want during the day if you don’t have more than 20 people at once.

You can stay overnight at someone else's house.

If you are over 70 or have a pre-existing medical condition, you should limit the number of visitors and take care at all times. Some people, such as carers, who need to attend your home will not be counted as visitors. 

Up to 20 people can gather in public.
