NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian has announced that there will be no caps on numbers at weddings and funerals from Monday.
Ms Berejiklian said there will also be no restrictions on singing including in places of worship, no restriction on dancing including at weddings and in pubs and nightclubs and no cap on visitors in the home (But if there are more than 100 people there must be a COVID-19 safety plan and electronic recording of visitor details.).
The Premier said 200 people will be allowed for personal outdoor public gatherings and all venues will move to the one person per 2sqm rule. But venues will be allowed at least 25 people before the 2sqm rule applies.
The new rules means 100 per cent seated capacity will be allowed at entertainment venues including stadiums and theatres.
Meantime mask use on public transport will move from 'mandatory' to 'strongly recommended'.
Ms Berejiklian said businesses and other organisations must continue to ensure they keep accurate records of all attendances, including through QR Codes, to enable fast contact tracing in the event of any community transmission.
She said the easing of restrictions was a significant step forward as NSW continued its COVID-19 recovery.
"With no community transmission and our quarantine and frontline workers now receiving their second vaccinations, the timing is right to further ease restrictions across the State," Ms Berejiklian said.
"As we do this, it is important we don't let our guard down and continue to check in at venues, keep our social distance and get tested if we have even the mildest of symptoms."
Treasurer Dominic Perrottet said the further easing of COVID-19 restrictions is important in helping businesses return to "normal".
"It's like a jab of confidence for the economy," he said.
Dr Kerry Chant said it is critical everyone continues to practise COVID-safe behaviours, including using QR codes, staying home if unwell and getting tested.
"I also urge everyone to get vaccinated as soon as they are eligible and able to do so. It will not only protect you, your family and loved ones, but will keep the whole community safe," Dr Chant said.
