With Easter approaching, the Premier has announced a range of new measures aimed at stopping the spread of COVID-19.

“We’re trying our hardest to make Easter a safe and healthy time for everyone,” says Gladys Berejiklian. “But we need to be careful.”

The state government has introduced new social distancing rules, altering the way Easter egg hunts are carried out.

“We’re restricting all Easter bunnies to leaving one Easter egg per four square metres,” says the Premier. “Simple measure like this can make a big difference.”

There are also new laws requiring those involved in Easter egg hunts to wear disposable gloves and face masks.

“People will need to remove their face masks to eat the chocolate,” says the premier. “But we’re only allowing them to 10 seconds at a time to do this.”

A full list of Easter related social distancing rules is available on the Department of Health website.
