Greater Sydney residents will be subject to tightened coronavirus restrictions, including mandated face masks, from midnight as authorities attempt to control an outbreak which has spread from the Northern Beaches, across the city and into Victoria. Premier Gladys Berejiklian announced the tough new rules for Sydney, Wollongong, the Central Coast and Blue Mountains as New South Wales recorded seven new Covid-19 infections on Saturday. The premier said the new measures – which include changes to gym classes, weddings and funerals – are needed to reduce the potential transmission of coronavirus, while maintaining economic activity. Ms Berejiklian’s updated rules have divided public opinion, with some residents supporting the fresh measures and others questioning why face masks weren’t introduced earlier.
