A fresh slate of covid-19 restrictions are expected to be announced by the NSW government according to a report by the Sydney Morning Herald.

Among these covid restrictions, nightclubs are expected to be shut yet again, singing and dancing will be banned in pubs and major events will be paused as the state battles the omicron variant. Elective surgeries are likely to be postponed as well to lighten the load on NSW hospitals.

Density limits of one person per 2 square metres were reinstated on December 27 with the indoor face mask mandate set to remain in place until January 27, 2022.
