New COVID rules 13 September

COVID update

From Monday 13 September, there will be some changes to rules for people across NSW who have had both doses of a COVID-19 vaccine.

For those who live in the Wollongong and Shellharbour LGAs:

A group of five people may gather in a PUBLIC PLACE 

  • People 16 and older must be fully vaccinated and carry proof that they have been vaccinated
  • Children 12 – 15 are included in the count of five people and don’t need to be vaccinated
  • Children under 12  do not count towards the count of five people and don’t need to be vaccinated

Other useful information 

  • Public place means a public road, public reserve or other place which the public are entitled to use, not a private residence
  • Remember to wear your mask (unless eating, drinking or exercising)
  • If not fully vaccinated (or in possession of a medical certificate), outdoor gatherings remain limited to 2 people.
