From Saturday 13th June 2020 COVID-19 restrictions will further ease, meaning the following will be allowed in NSW:
• fitness, gymnasiums, pilates, yoga and dance studios can reopen with up to 10 people per class and 100 people in an indoor venue
• community centres, including their recreational facilities can reopen
• some indoor recreational facilities including pools and saunas can reopen with restricted numbers
• tattoo and massage parlours can reopen with up to 10 clients.
The four square metre rule must be applied at all times.
Kids’ sport and community sport competitions can also restart for those aged 18 years and under from Wednesday 1st July 2020. The return date for adult community sport activities will be made at a later stage.
Health Minister Brad Hazzard said COVID-19 safety plans for each activity or sport are critical to enable this re-start.
“Sport and businesses will need to do things a little differently than in pre-COVID-19 times and following their safety plan is key to keeping people safe,” Mr Hazzard said.
“Re-opening kids’ sporting competitions on 1st July 2020 gives groups and local government which manages many of these facilities, time to work through all the new changes,” said Mr Hazzard.
