The NSW state government has eased COVID-19 restrictions on standing while drinking

From Wednesday, 17 March (A.KOn St. Patrick’s Day), “vertical consumption” is allowed again in interiors, pubs and clubs

“I’m not sure if it’s the luck of the Irish or the good work of the NSW citizens, but today we can get up and have a beer … bring some level of normality out of the background of this pandemic,” said the deputy prime minister of NSW, John Barilaro

According to The Sydney Morning Herald, the NSW state government plans to lift COVID-19 restrictions on weddings and funerals soon and allow the dance to return

“It doesn’t make a lot of sense that you can dance at a wedding, but you can’t dance at the St. Paddy day dancing in a pub So that’s the next one, “said Treasurer Dominic Perrottet

“We want to get to a point where you can do the same activity regardless of your attitude”

As reported by The Sydney Morning Herald, Barilaro stated that another announcement regarding lifted restrictions can be expected by next Wednesday

The news comes from NSW, which registered a new locally acquired case of COVID-19 in the last reporting period

The case is a returning traveler who was on the same floor of the Sofitel Wentworth Hotel as a security officer who was also reported as a positive case last week, reports the Sydney Morning Herald

Prime Minister Gladys Berejiklian said the timing of the person’s diagnosis suggested it was likely they had trapped him during their two-week quarantine at Sofitel

“This is why people are asked to isolate: they could be negative on day three, but positive on day ten,” she said
