Requirements for masks have been updated

Masks are only required for certain high-risk settings, such as travel, hospitals and indoor music festivals.

Masks are still encouraged for indoor settings where you cannot maintain a safe distance from others and for customer-facing retail staff.


The rules for face masks at schools have also changed.

It is strongly recommended for all people in NSW over the age of 12 to wear a face mask:  

  • In airports

  • At a public hospital or private health facility (including private hospitals and day procedure centres)

  • In residential care facilities or hostels

  • In indoor music festivals with more than 1,000 people

  • On public transport and public transport waiting areas (including in taxis and rideshare services)

  • On a domestic commercial aircraft (including when the aircraft is flying above NSW).

What should I do if I have been exposed to someone who has COVID-19?

Your risk of getting COVID-19 will be based on the type of contact you had with a person who has COVID-19.  When thinking about your testing and isolation requirements, think about your circumstances, including the risk you could infect vulnerable people you live or work with.

All people exposed to someone with COVID-19 should watch carefully for symptoms. If symptoms occur, have a test immediately. See the table below for more information on what to do next.
