NSW bans singing, dancing in pubs, clubs

The NSW Premier has announced some “minor amendments” to social restrictions in response to the omicron wave.

– From January 8 to 27, there will be no singing or dancing in pubs, clubs, nightclubs, bars and restaurants and recreation facilities. This will not apply to weddings or for students or instructors at these events.

– Major events scheduled for coming weeks will be assessed by NSW Health and organisers should assume their event would proceed unchanged unless contacted by NSW Health.

– Booster shots will also be mandated for workers who are already subject to mandatory vaccination rules. “People working in particular settings will now need to have had three shots.”

“The modelling today is encouraging. Whilst it will be a difficult few weeks in NSW, our people and the effort we have made to go – to go out, to get vaccinated, to get boosted, has been key to opening up our society, to living alongside the virus. This is a challenging time, not just in NSW, but around the world,” he said.
