To help stop the spread of COVID-19, more restrictions have been put in place to keep people safe. 

We have added to our table below, to reflect the most recent orders, and we have altered the format a little to try to improve understanding as working through the rules gets more complicated.  This takes into account the changes for people in the Armidale and Tamworth area and parts of Greater Sydney. 

If you live in the Armidale Regional LGA, or visited on or after 29th July 2021. If you have left the area, you must follow the stay at home rules until 12.01am Sunday 15 August 2021.

New restrictions will be introduced for the Tamworth Local Government Area, from 5pm 9 August until 12.01am Tuesday 16 August, and we expect the health orders to be updated later today.

In Greater Sydney some suburbs of Penrith have been added to the Local Areas of Concern.  These are Caddens, Claremont Meadows, Colyton, Erskine Park, Kemps Creek, Kingswood, Mount Vernon, North St Marys, Orchard Hills, Oxley Park, St Clair and St Marys.

“We hope you are able to ride today, and we encourage everyone who normally travels to work by bicycle to remember to include this on tomorrow’s census,” said Bicycle NSW General Manager of Public Affairs, Bastien Wallace.

“Bike riding is a great way to stay active, and a healthy way to travel,” said Bastien.

For further information about the NSW Health COVID-19 rules, check out the website and the updated health orders. The fines for not wearing a mask have increased from $200 to $500, and people who have medical reasons not to wear a mask must carry evidence of this.
