Which Shops are Open During Lockdown?
As restrictions get tighter in Greater Sydney and new measures are put in place to try and curb the spread of Coronavirus, you're probably wondering which shops are actually open during this lockdown?
Shopping confusion is always rife during lockdown as ‘non-essential services’ progressively shut down, yet other equally populated places remain open. Ultimately, retail deemed “non-critical” is required to close and only permitted to offer click and collect, takeaway and home delivery until 28 August 2021.
It is now mandatory that masks are worn at all times while outside the home. This includes while waiting in outdoor queues for coffee and takeaway food, in outdoor markets, outdoor shopping strips and while working outdoors.
