NSW has recorded just three new cases of COVID-19 as pubs, restaurants, cafes and bars reopen amid an easing of coronavirus restrictions.
The three cases were detected from 9000 tests in the 24 hours to Friday night, taking the state’s total to 3074. Six people were in intensive care.
Over the weekend people have ventured back to their local eateries, pubs and bars, with dining venues able to take up to 10 patrons if they maintain social distancing.
NSW Police Assistant Commissioner Joe Cassar said police would continue to work with venues as patrons return to their local haunts.
He said rain in Sydney on Friday night impacted the number of people seeking tables, making 10-person limits and distancing requirements easier to implement.
“We’ve got early feedback from our police on the ground there’s an acceptance conditions have been relaxed and there’s been compliance with the new conditions,” Mr Cassar told reporters on Saturday.
“We’re in a very positive situation with low numbers being recorded and just ask members of the community to continue to comply with those conditions.”
