The NSW State Government announced an easing of restrictions earlier this month.
The changes, from previous restrictions, included:
- No more than 20 persons per green
- This does NOT INCLUDE any staff or officials
- Any persons on a bowling green ARE NOT to be counted in the total number of persons allowed on the premises of a licensed club, as long as the number is restricted to 20 persons per green (excluding staff & officials).
To comply with this regulation, all clubs, who allow use of greens, must keep a record of who participates for a period of at least 4 weeks. They must provide a copy of that record to the Ministry of Health, if required, for the purposes of contact tracing.
