Police establish checkpoints in Bondi and Coogee to enforce health orders
Stay at home restrictions advised on the NSW Health website state that a person who has to follow the stay at home rules can only be away from their home with a reasonable excuse.
A person can also only enter Greater Sydney from outside of Greater Sydney with a reasonable excuse.
Reasonable excuses include:
- Obtaining food or other goods and services locally (within your own local government area, or, if in another local government area, within 5 kilometres of your home).
- Only one person in the household can leave their residence to obtain food, goods or services once a day. This restriction does not apply if it is not reasonably practicable (e.g. if a parent needs to take their dependent child to the shops with them).
- Browsing in shops is prohibited and not a reasonable excuse to leave your home.
- Travelling to attend work or education (where it is not possible to do at home). An employer must direct their staff to work from home if reasonably practicable.
- Exercise outdoors in groups of no more than 2 (excluding members of the same household):
- People must stay in their Local Government Area or, if in another local government area, within 5 kilometres of home.
- Obtaining medical care or supplies – including obtaining a COVID-19 vaccination
- Providing care or assistance to a vulnerable person
- Attending a small funeral of no more than 10 persons (excluding the person conducting the service and any other person necessary for the conduct and preparation of the service). A funeral cannot occur in a place of residence (exemptions may be in place for some of the areas that have to follow the stay at home rules, larger funerals can take place on 15 August 2021 in areas that were not under stay at home rules prior to 14 August 2021)
A person over 18 must carry documentary evidence showing their address and show it to Police on request.
