Working During Covid-19 Restrictions



From Monday 18 October the reopening NSW roadmap’s 80 percent  settings have come into effect. If you are fully vaccinated, masks will no longer be required to be worn (other than that part of an office building that is a restaurant, café, bar, retail shop, gym etc).

A summary of the 80 percent settings is available at:

From 1 November 2021 

The following restrictions will change:

  • bookings for hospitality venues will no longer be capped
  • travel between Greater Sydney (including the Blue Mountains, Wollongong, Shellharbour and the Central Coast) will no longer be restricted
  • there will be no quarantining for full vaccinated travellers. This will only apply to individuals vaccinated with a TGA recognised vaccine and where the vaccination status is certified by the Commonwealth
  • fully vaccinated travellers already in quarantine will also complete their quarantine requirements on November 1 if they’re symptom free, even if it is less than 14-days
  • travellers who are unvaccinated, or who have received a vaccine that is not recognised by the TGA, will be required to undertake 14 days hotel quarantine
  • NSW will retain a passenger cap for unvaccinated arrivals of 210 passengers per week.

More restrictions will be relaxed on 1 December, as previously announced in the Reopening NSW Roadmap.

COVID-Safe Plan 

Every production must have and be able to produce a COVID-Safe Plan. The Australian Screen Production Industry COVID-Safe Guidelines can be viewed here:

Every production working on location should also advise the local Police Area Command that they are working in their area to avoid confusion or concern from local community members and possible shut down. 

We ask that you continue to implement your bespoke stringent COVID-Safe plans to best ensure the safety of the cast, crew and the wider NSW community.
