Stay at home orders apply to Greater Sydney which includes the Blue Mountains, Central Coast, Wollongong and Shellharbour. Stay-at-home orders have also been introduced for the Kempsey, Byron Shire and Tweed Local Government Areas (LGAs) from 5pm today (21/09/21) for seven days due to an increased COVID-19 public health risk. You must stay within 5km of your home unless the essential service you need is not reasonably available locally. Greater Sydney is operating under stricter rules including wearing a mask at all times outside the house.
The rest of NSW is also currently under a stay-at-home order. Stay at home rules apply, and if you must leave home, do not travel outside your local area if you can avoid it.
You can enter New South Wales from interstate provided you have not been to an area of concern within a specified time. Areas of concern are posted here. Some states have closed their borders to NSW, please check with each state before entering if you have been in Sydney or NSW recently.
If you enter NSW by air or rail, you’ll need to fill out a traveller self-declaration form. People who work or travel within NSW-Victoria border communities don’t need to complete a traveller self-declaration form.
These rules also apply to people who have received the COVID-19 vaccine.
