NSW Pubs & Clubs Can Reopen Tomorrow Along With Cafes & Restaurants, But There's A Catch
Pubs and clubs in NSW can reopen their attached restaurants and cafés starting tomorrow (Friday), announced the NSW Government. That means you'll be able to dine at your favourite pubs and clubs, although the bars and gaming facilities will remain closed for the time being. So: yes to a cheeky schnitty, no to a rager in the club.
The state govt had already announced that regular cafés and restaurants could reopen tomorrow, but that they needed to follow social distancing rules and only allow 10 people inside to sit and eat. Of course, the same rules'll apply for the food joints attached to the pubs and clubs too. Takeaway service, however, will stay the same.
From Friday, there will be many more people out and about. More important than ever to stay 1.5m apart and wash hands frequently. If unwell, get tested and stay home. For more info visit https://t.co/ka9q1ClOKn or call 13 77 88 pic.twitter.com/CXql6Dm4Tm

"It's been a tough few months but we are starting to see some wins, first on the health front and now in getting the economy back, and this is welcome news for many regional towns," said Deputy Premier John Barilaro.
It's all getting a little hard to follow. Here's what you'll be allowed to do from tomorrow (14/5) in NSW...
- Have five visitors to your home
- Outdoor gatherings of 10 people
- Dine at cafes and restaurants (and now at those eateries attached to pubs and clubs) for up to 10 at a time
- Up to 10 wedding guests, 20 funeral guests indoors (30 outdoors)
- Up to 10 people can attend religious gatherings at places of worship
- Outdoor gyms and playgrounds will open and outdoor pools with restrictions
Still, though, we're a long way off from business as usual. As Premier Gladys Berejiklian put it last week: "We will never have normal lives until the pandemic is over. I can't stress that enough." Stay safe everyone.
