COVID-19 information and Stimulus Packages 2021

Last updated 20 Aug 2021

From Business NSW:

Seems like we’re in for some tougher restrictions moving forward, key highlights this morning from midnight Monday:
– Face masks become mandatory outdoors, unless exercising rigorously (must still be carried)
– Sydney will remain in lockdown till end of September
o LGA’s of concern will be in a curfew
– Regional NSW until August 28 (but this may be extended)

With the lockdowns continuing, I thought it prudent to provide an updated support package summary.

Of noting, is that the Federal Governments Disaster Recovery payment for employees with reduced hours has increased to $450-$750/week.

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact Service NSW.

Stay at home orders for Regional NSW – 16 Aug 21
