The COVID-19 situation continues to evolve and due to the risks associated with an increasing number of venues and transmissions which have occurred, the strict stay-at-home order has been extended to ALL of Greater Sydney, the Blue Mountains, the Central Coast, Wollongong and Shellharbour.
From 5.00 pm Friday, July 9th 2021, until 11.59 pm, Friday, August 27th 2021, people will only be able to leave home for one of the following four reasons:
- Shopping for food or other essential goods and services
- Medical care or compassionate needs
- Exercise outdoors in groups of a maximum of two (unless players are from the same household) within your own Local Government Area (LGA) OR within 10km of where you live
- Essential work, or education, where you cannot work or study from home
Additional restrictions also apply to residents of Cumberland, Blacktown, Campbelltown, Canterbury Bankstown, Liverpool, Parramatta, Georges River and Fairfield LGA’s. However, the same restrictions apply for exercise as in other LGA’s.
While clubhouse operations in the aforementioned areas must be closed for normal business (except takeaway, home delivery or ‘click and collect’), Golf NSW has been advised that golf is considered exercise and can continue if your Club has and complies with its COVID-19 Safety Plan.
Golf Shops may provide services to enable the play of golf for exercise, but must cease other retail functions (unless click and collect, take away or home delivery). Golfers should exhibit a heightened awareness of personal hygiene and adhere to social distancing guidelines at all times.
