The NSW Government has put in place several COVID-19 guidelines to keep citizens and visitors safe.
NSW is leading the way in Australia with its effective contact tracing tools. As at 23 November 2020, customer check-in at businesses must be completed using electronic methods, such as a QR code. Digital systems are contactless, safe to use and and greatly assist NSW Health contact tracers. The NSW government is offering a Service NSW COVID Safe Check-in tool free to registered businesses.
Transport NSW: "No Dot, No Spot"
Distinctive green dots are now on public transport to show you the safest places to sit and stand. A ‘No dot, no spot’ rule applies - this means if there’s no room to travel and maintain social distancing safely, you may be asked to wait for the next service. Passengers still need to leave a space or an empty seat between themselves.
Automated Pedestrian Crossings
Pedestrian crossings have now been automated, removing the requirement to press a button to activate the set of traffic lights.
Public Health Order Guiding Business
Businesses are requested to show their commitment to COVID Safety and keeping our community safe by completing a COVID-19 Safety Plan and registering as a COVID Safe business. Once registered, a business may display a COVID Safe Logo onsite at their premises, and online, to ensure customers feel confident that they are taking every measure to keep them safe.
Physical Distancing measures
Following public health guidelines, a physical distance of 1.5 metres has been put in place to stop the spread of COVID-19. Businesses such as supermarkets, shopping centres, restaurants and cafes have designated signs to indicate the 1.5 metre distance required.
From 7 December 2020, venues are able to hold corporate events that allow for one person per two square metres, with no caps on attendees.
Keeping Sydney Safe
The Sydney City Council is doing its bit to make Sydney a safe, healthy and happy destination for workers, visitors and locals. It has implemented a community recovery plan to provide a clear, staged approach to re-opening and is updating infrastructure in the city to allow for greater physical distancing, such as widening footpaths, creating pedestrian-only streets and adding more bike lanes to free up space on public transport and provide safe options to travel around the city.
