Further four weeks of lockdown announced for Sydney, and another new term coined, 'single bubble'

NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian has this morning announced another four week lockdown for Sydney after alleging 177 Covid 'cases'.

Along with the continued lockdowns, the Premier ordered a slew of additional nonsensical restrictions, including coining a new term, 'single bubble'.

Ms Berejiklian's instructed the current stay at home orders are are to stay in place until August 28th for Greater Sydney, the Central Coast, Wollongong and Shellharbour.

Locked down residents can only visit shops in their local area or within 10kms of their residence.

The Premier also gave bizarre instructions for singles, outlining rules under a new term coined as a 'singles bubble'.

A single is defined a single as a person who lives alone, is a single parent with a child or children under 18 years of age or if you care for a person with an illness or disability who is over 18 years old.

A 'crisis cabinet' of ministers including Deputy Premier John Barilaro, Customer Services Minister Victor Dominello, Brad Hazzard and Dominic Perrottet signed off on the new regulations around the movements of singles in the community ironically citing mental health concerns.

Single bubble rules include you can only choose one person to see within your 'social bubble', you cannot change the person once you start your social bubble and the person you choose for your social bubble cannot be in a social bubble with someone else.

For those who live outside of Sydney you must choose a person for your social bubble who lives in Greater Sydney.

If you live in regional NSW you must choose a person for your social bubble who lives in regional NSW.

The person in your social bubble can visit you at your home, and you can visit them at theirs.

You can only visit them at their home where no other adults are there – the same applies when they visit your home.

It is okay to visit them and for them to visit you but only if there are children in the home.

If you have special needs, your carer or support worker can be with you when you visit the person in your social bubble.

Mask wearing remains in place in your social bubble even if you are indoors unless you have an exemption.

You can travel outside the 10-kilometre radius from your home to visit the person in your social bubble, but you cannot travel to regional NSW if you live in Greater Sydney (nor can you travel to Greater Sydney if you live in regional NSW).
