Singing and dancing were banned on December 20 as NSW battled against an outbreak of Covid-19 infections on Sydney’s Northern Beaches.

Restrictions on gym classes have also been eased and can now host up to 50 people as long as the four-square metre rule is followed. 

NSW Health said one case of the virus was found in a returned traveller in hotel quarantine overnight following 17,917 tests in the past 24 hours.
