COVID-19 Restrictions

Further restrictions are being lifted today, with changes to rules for travel and venues, and the reopening of museums, libraries and beauty salons. The latest rules are HERE. Transport for NSW has advice for keeping save while catching public transport as more people return to the network: HERE.

COVID-19 has not gone and community transmission cases continue so it remains vital to get tested if you have even the mildest symptoms so we can contain the virus.

While it has taken time, I hope that the NSW Government’s $50 million Rescue and Restart package will safeguard arts and cultural organisations during the shut-down and help them restart as restrictions are lifted: HERE. In Parliament I asked for assistance for the music festival industry which provides significant economic and social contributions but has been at a standstill since March.

I welcome new funding for Being’s mental health peer support line, which will help provide vital support at this time: HERE.
