If you live in a local government area (LGA) of concern, or you have people on-site who live in an LGA of concern, as of this morning, there are additional restrictions to be aware of:
The testing rules for authorised workers who work outside their LGA of concern no longer apply. Authorised workers must now follow the vaccination requirements. An authorised worker must have:
- 2 doses of a COVID-19 vaccine or
- 1 dose of a COVID-19 vaccine at least 21 days ago or
- 1 dose of a COVID-19 vaccine within the past 21 days and you have been tested for COVID-19 in the past 72 hours (3 days) or
- Evidence of a medical exemption and you have been tested for COVID-19 in the past 72 hours.
As of 28 August, all authorised workers from the LGAs of concern will be required to carry a permit from Service NSW declaring that they are an authorised worker and cannot work from home; this also applies to anyone entering an LGA of concern for the purposes of work.
Workers from the Canterbury-Bankstown, Cumberland and Fairfield LGAs will no longer have to have been tested for COVID-19 in the previous 72 hours to work outside their LGA.
If you live in Greater Sydney, and need to travel 50km outside Greater Sydney:
- Register to travel with the NSW Govt when travelling outside Greater Sydney
With the Covid-19 rules for construction maintenance being updated regularly and varying based on where you live and operate, we appreciate it can be confusing!
