​Councils all along the NSW coast, including Greater Sydney and Northern Beaches, should be aware that there are no Public Health Orders stopping beaches being open for swimming, exercise or recreation.

Surf lifesaving availability is for Councils to determine but it is considered usual arrangements should apply.

In the northern area of the Northern Beaches only 5 people from this zone may gather for exercise or recreation.

In the Southern zone of Northern Beaches, limits of ten people from this zone apply. Physical distancing of 1.5 m should be encouraged for non-household members. Limits apply in other areas and are on health web page.

For people outside the Northern Beaches, you should not enter the Northern Beaches unless you have a reasonable excuse. A reasonable excuse does not include exercise or recreation.
