TODAY New South Wales Premier Gladys Berejiklian announced some major coronavirus restrictions will be lifted next Monday, December 7.
NSW residents will be allowed to boogie the night away, as up to 50 people will be allowed back on the dance floor.
Stand up drinking will also be allowed at outdoor hospitality venues and there will no longer be a capacity limit for weddings and funerals.
The four square metre rule will put back to two square metres for all venues both indoors and outdoors, excluding gyms and night clubs.
One-hundred people will be allowed to attend an outdoor gathering, such as family picnic and barbecues and the upper caps for hospitality venues will be removed.
Outdoor stadiums and theatres will return to 100 percent capacity and indoor theatres that are ticketed and seated will be allowed to have up to 75 percent capacity.
The announcement follows 25 days of zero local community transmission and arrives just in time for Christmas and New Year celebrations.
“No mater what the restrictions are, if you have the slightest of symptoms you need to get tested,” said Premier Berejiklian.
