What is an essential worker? NSW COVID-19 restrictions and Greater Sydney lockdown rules confusing residents

0 1

It’s a critical question that the NSW Government has so far baulked at, but is at the heart of Greater Sydney’s key confusion: What is an essential worker in NSW?

Only essential workers are able to leave their homes as part of Sydney’s extended lockdown, while non-essential workers are permitted to only leave the house for one of four reasons.

These restrictions are in place for Greater Sydney, including the Central Coast, Blue Mountains, Wollongong and Shellharbour, and include:

  • Shopping for food or other essential goods and services (one person only);
  • Medical care or compassionate needs (only one visitor can enter another residence to fulfil carers’ responsibilities or provide care or assistance, or for compassionate reasons);
  • Exercise limited to two people (unless members of the same household);
  • Essential work, or education, where you cannot work or study from home.
