Sutherland Shire residents are fortunate to be allowed under COVID-19 rules to relax outdoors, including sitting, eating, drinking or reading.
Georges River and Bayside residents don't have the same liberty, and outdoors relaxation is banned.
Many people remain confused about the rules, particularly after this week's changes, but they are spelt out in multiple pages on the NSW Health website.
In the shire, which is subject to basic lockdown rules, residents can shop, exercise and engage in outdoor recreation anywhere within the local government area (LGA) or, if they live near the border, in an LGA within five kilometres of their home.
In Georges River, Bayside and other LGAs which are "areas of concern", residents must shop and exercise within their LGA and no further than five kilometres from home, and outdoor recreation is banned.
There are on the spot fines of $3000 for breaching the two person outdoor exercise / recreation rule.
The NSW Health website states: "Exercise is an activity that requires physical effort and is designed to maintain or improve health. Examples include running, walking, cycling, water sports or swimming.
"Recreation includes outdoor leisure activities such as sitting for relaxation, or to eat, drink or read outdoors.
"In the LGA areas of concern, you may go outdoors for exercise with one other person you do not live with, and/or members of your household (people you live with).
"You may supervise a child aged 12 or under while they exercise or play outdoors.
"Going outside for recreation is not allowed".
