SYDNEY EASES COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS FOR CHRISTMAS

Sydney on Wednesday (Dec 23) eased lockdown restrictions for Christmas after Australia’s largest city reported a second day of new COVID-19 cases in the single digits.

Amid a record testing and tracing effort, just eight new cases were recorded in the past 24 hours, prompting authorities to announce all residents could have at least some visitors over to celebrate the festive period.

“Everybody has had a very difficult year,” said state Premier Gladys Berejiklian, announcing the “modest” three-day easing of restrictions.

Berejiklian said most Sydneysiders would be allowed to invite 10 adults to their homes, with that number limited to five in the neighbourhoods at the epicentre of the outbreak.

She said the relaxing of rules was possible because of the low number of new cases – 16 in the past 48 hours – and because most have been linked to known infections.
