Health authorities provided further details clarifying the change on Tuesday after some confusion as to how the travel ban would affect regions – previously reported as a statewide travel ban. There were 63 new infections in the Illawarra-Shoalhaven Local Health District (ISLHD) and a Wollongong resident died. But he is brimming with health and optimism, and has a passionate attachment to “my doctor Mende”. However, this quarantine typically must be ordered by a doctor (or by a government, on some plans) to trigger coverage, and it typically requires strict isolation.
All insurance products are governed by the terms in the applicable insurance policy, and all related decisions (such as approval for coverage, premiums, commissions and fees) and policy obligations are the sole responsibility of the underwriting insurer. To calculate your insurance need, take stock of what losses – if any – you would incur in the event you need to cancel the trip in advance of departure. But before you let your policy choice hinge on the baggage cover, it’s worth checking that you don’t already have ‘portable contents’ cover for specified items under your home contents insurance.
You have to be seated to eat and drink. Authorised workers may enter the region if they have registered their travel. • You are able to travel further than five kilometres and take holidays within Greater Sydney (people in Greater Sydney can only holiday in the Greater Sydney region including Central Coast, Wollongong, Shellharbour and Blue Mountains.) You cannot holiday in regional LGAs.
Domestic travel, including trips to regional NSW, will be permitted. Only hospitality staff will be required to wear a mask when outdoors. Children aged under 12 will not need to wear a mask indoors. While people from regional and rural NSW will still be permitted to travel the Monday after the state hits 70 per cent, which is still looking like October 11. But residents of Greater Sydney – which will once again include the Central Coast, as well as the Blue Mountains and Shellharbour – will not be able to travel.
From the Monday after NSW hits the 80 per cent, those who are fully vaccinated to have up to 10 people visit their home, participate in community sport, and access hospitality venues (where drinking while standing up will be allowed indoors). Hospitality venues can reopen subject to one person per 4sqm inside and one person per 2sqm outside, with standing while drinking permitted outside. Indoor entertainment and information facilities including cinemas, theatres, music halls, museums and galleries can reopen with one person per 4sqm or 75 per cent fixed seated capacity.
Sporting facilities including swimming pools can reopen. Gyms and indoor recreation facilities can open under the one person per 4sqm rule and can offer classes for up to 20 people. • Churches and places of worship can open and are subject to the one-square-metre rule. As both countries appear to have successfully brought their coronavirus outbreaks under control (currently Australia has just 15 new cases; New Zealand has zero, per Google’s virus tracker) and so long as new infection numbers remain near zero, politicians are weighing options to safely ease open the border, just a little.
A triage tent was installed outside the entrance to Wollongong Hospital’s Emergency Department over the weekend in response to the ongoing high case numbers. Earlier in the year, I chose to cancel a planned weekend trip because my husband’s aunt broke her hip. Under the road map out of the lockdown, hospitality venues, retail, theatres, stadiums, gyms and places of worship can reopen on that date but residents from Greater Sydney will not be allowed to take a road trip to the regions for at least another two weeks.
Masks will remain mandatory for all indoor public venues, including public transport, front-of-house hospitality, retail and business premises, on planes and at airports. Major recreation outdoor facilities including stadiums, racecourses, theme parks and zoos can reopen with one person per 4sqm, capped at 5,000 people. The United States has stipulated that those coming from countries such as India should produce either RT-PCR negative test certificate received one day prior to the journey or a document proving recovery from disease within the last three months.
