When can I leave home, what will be open, and what happens if I break the rules? Everything you need to know about Sydney hotspot lockdowns

Residents of four Sydney local government areas have been warned not to leave their homes unless ‘absolutely necessary’. 

NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian imposed the stay-at-home orders on Friday morning after the state recorded 11 new local Covid-19 cases with a further 17 to be included in tomorrow’s numbers.

Residents in the hotspot suburbs in the Woollahra, Randwick, Waverly and City of Sydney local government areas are allowed to leave home for work, education, essential shopping, care-giving and exercise in groups of ten or less.

‘If you live or work in those Local Government Areas you are not to leave your home unless you absolutely have to, we would prefer you work at home or stay at home for education,’ Ms Berejiklian said.

Sydney’s latest outbreak, which has caused 42 infections and led to mandated mask-wearing, was sparked by a limo driver who was unvaccinated and not wearing an N95 mask when he collected flight crew.
