New South Wales will further ease coronavirus restrictions from this weekend as the State continues to flatten the curve.
From Saturday, residents will be allowed to welcome 20 people in their home and hold gatherings outside of up to 20 people.
Food courts will also be allowed to reopen provided social distancing is adhered to.

New South Wales Premier Gladys Berejiklian says this has been made possible because the State has been doing so well.
“Whilst we’re easing restrictions on the number of people that can come into your home and the number of people that can gather outdoors and the number of people who can attend food courts, can I make the statement, please do not let your guard down,” Ms Berejiklian said.
“We cannot forget the virus is still amongst us. The virus is deadly, it’s contagious and while these restrictions are being eased let’s be vigilant about doing well.”
New South Wales has now gone two weeks without any community transmission with all its recent cases involving returned overseas travellers.
Ms Berejiklian says details on the next stage of restrictions to be eased will be announced shortly.
“We plan to say, have a whole lot more to say in the next few days, in the next week, about what July looks like, and, please know that where we can, it is based on the health advice, that we will ease these restrictions.”
