More restrictions to be eased

Covid 19 Update2

Cafes and restaurants will be allowed to re-open for up to 10 patrons and five people will be able to visit another person's home under an anticipated easing of coronavirus restrictions in NSW.

Premier Gladys Berejiklian is expected to announce the changes on Sunday to come into play on Friday, a full week after Prime Minister Scott Morrison revealed a three-stage plan to ease lockdown measures across Australia.

It's up to individual states and territories to decide when they act.

Currently, two adults from the same household, along with their dependent children, can visit another home in NSW under the existing COVID-19 restrictions.

"The changes will allow NSW to fire up the economy, while allowing more personal freedoms," Ms Berejiklian told The Sunday Telegraph.
