The ACT Government will today lift COVID-19 travel restrictions for parts of Sydney along with the Central Coast, Wollongong and the Blue Mountains, but much of Sydney will remain a hotspot area.
Currently non-residents are unable to enter the ACT if they have come from Greater Sydney, Wollongong or the Central Coast.
From 3:00pm today, the travel ban will be lifted for some of those New South Wales locations.
Restrictions will remain in place for people from these 11 local government areas in Sydney:
- Northern Beaches
- Blacktown City
- Canada Bay City
- Fairfield City
- Inner West
- Liverpool City
- Paramatta City
- Strathfield Municipality
“ACT residents and non-residents currently in quarantine from those 11 specific local government areas … still need to complete their 14-day quarantine period,” Chief Minister Andrew Barr said.
“People who are currently in quarantine in the ACT from the Central Coast, from Wollongong, from the Blue Mountains and other areas of Greater Sydney that are not on that list of 11 local government areas are no longer required to quarantine.”
More to come.
