With COVID-19 rules seemingly changing day to day depending on where you live, it can be difficult to keep up with what applies to you.
In regional NSW, 30 local government areas remain under stay-at-home orders, a month after the statewide lockdown was announced.
But, as the state reaches more vaccination targets, a number of restrictions have started to ease and we've put together a handy guide for everything you can and can't do, as of Monday, September 20.
There are currently eight reasonable excuses to leave home, which include:
Along with the phone, wallet and keys remember to bring a mask with you and a proof of address, especially if you have a reason to travel to a neighboring LGA.
Face masks must be worn by persons over-12 years old in all non-residential indoor and outdoor areas, except when exercising.
You must carry a mask at all times, even when exercising.
You should always use hand sanitiser or wash your hands before and after changing your face mask.
There are some health exemptions for wearing a face mask which can be found on the NSW Health website.
As of Monday, September 13 outdoor picnic gatherings of up to five fully vaccinated people, not including children under 12-years old, are allowed.
Gatherings must take place within your local government area and must be outside in a public place.
