Restaurants back to takeaway as NSW implements two-week lockdown in Greater Sydney, surrounding areas
It is expected to last until 9 July, 11.59pm.
Restaurants, cafés and pubs across Greater Sydney, Blue Mountains, the Central Coast and Wollongong are now restricted to takeaway, after the NSW State Government on Saturday announced a 14-day lockdown in a bid to curb the city's growing COVID-19 outbreak.
People are told to only leave their homes for essential work or education (when work or study cannot be done at home), for compassionate needs or medical care (including to receive a COVID-19 test or vaccine), to purchase essential goods and services, and to exercise outdoors in a maximum group of 10 people.
The lockdown is expected to last until 9 July, 11.59pm.
New restrictions also apply in regional New South Wales. In hospitality venues, all customers must be seated, and the four-square-metre rule applies.
