Coronavirus restrictions are gradually easing across the state. This live list will guide you through the places that are reopening around Sydney at each stage of the wind-back.

New South Wales is in the second stage of restrictions repeal. At the moment, up to 50 people are allowed in restaurants, bars and cafes (with a few caveats).

We’re updating this list as new information becomes available. Get in touch at directory@broadsheet.com.au if you have relevant news.
