Construction sites across Greater Sydney will be shut down from Monday, as a raft of new restrictions were announced for NSW.
From Monday, all construction will be paused, until at least July 30.

That includes non-urgent maintenance, cleaning services and repair work.
Another 111 cases were recorded in NSW on Saturday, as the third death of the current outbreak was recorded.
“We know this is a big decision,” Premier Gladys Berejiklian said on Saturday.
“We know the impact this will have on businesses small and large.
“But we really need to reduce mobility and we need to reduce the chances of anybody adding the virus in their workplace, spreading it to work colleagues and then bringing it home.
“We don’t underestimate the impact this has on our businesses, we appreciate that,” she added.
“But what is really important for us is to give business every chance to bounce back.
“This is our chance to quash this virus and make sure that families and businesses can bounce back as quickly as possible.”
Sydney lockdown restrictions
From 11.59pm on Saturday, non-essential retail will also be forced to close.
Residents of Fairfield, Canterbury-Bankstown and Liverpool council areas cannot leave their local government area for work except for emergency services and healthcare workers.
Where those workers do need to leave their LGA for work, they are required to be tested every three days, even if they do not have symptoms.
Masks are being made mandatory in all outdoor work settings, in outdoor markets, outdoor shopping strops and in any outdoor queues such as takeaway food.
Carpooling is also being banned.
