Changes have been announced for the restrictions that will be eased for NSW the Monday after the state hits the milestone of 80% of the adult population fully vaccinated.
New NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet revealed the changes with a number of restrictions around entertainment venues to be eased more than initially announced.
Among them, there will be a 3000-capacity limit for controlled outdoor gatherings (ie. seated, ticketed events such as concerts). It had previously been announced that the capacity limit would be 500, so it’s a fairly significant increase.
In July Spanish scientists researching COVID-19 at an indoor concert with 5,000 people without physical distancing found that same-day rapid testing, the use of face masks and improved ventilation led to very low rates of transmission. Of the 4,584 attendees who were analysed, six cases of COVID-19 were confirmed in the two weeks following the concert. Three of the cases were believed to have been caught after the event, while one person potentially attended the concert during their incubation period. The source of the other two cases couldn’t be identified
Nightclubs, meanwhile, will be permitted to open earlier than the previously-slated date of Wednesday, 1st December. There’s one big catch, though – clubs will be able to open for seated drinking only. Dancing will not be allowed until that 1st December date.
