Australia : Sydney to ease restrictions
From Monday, Australia’s largest city of Sydney will further ease social distancing curbs a month after emerging from a coronavirus lockdown that lasted nearly 100 days, as close to 90% of people have got both doses of vaccine.
Although limited to people who are fully inoculated, the relaxation in the state of New South Wales, home to Sydney, lifts limits on house guests or outdoor gatherings, among other measures.
Businesses will move to a one-person per two square metres capacity and dance floors and indoor swimming pools will be allowed to reopen. Density limits or 100 per cent fixed seated capacity will apply to outdoor recreation facilities, including stadiums, racecourses, theme parks and zoos, and entertainment facilities such as cinemas and theatres.
Australia eased international border curbs on Monday for the first time during the pandemic, but only for its vaccinated public from states with high levels of inoculation.
