Playgrounds, fitness stations reopen

The tape has been removed and playgrounds and outdoor fitness stations are again open.

Inner West Council has reopened playgrounds, outdoor fitness stations and skate parks today (Friday 15 May) in line with advice from NSW Health.
The easing of covid-19 restrictions will include:
• Commercial fitness trainers and boot camps are permitted to resume from today.
• Registered trainers are permitted to resume groups limited to 10 people​​.
• Social distancing and good hygiene must be maintained.​
• Users should exercise caution including practising social distancing. Use of hand sanitiser or wipes is recommended.
Community sport training will recommence from Tuesday, May 18.​
Community sport participants should contact their local club, association or peak body for information on when individual sports resume. ​
Premier Gladys Berejiklian said it was safe for NSW to ease restrictions as the community was vigilant with social distancing and hygiene.
“My firm position during the crisis has been to follow the health advice and do what’s best for NSW,” Ms Berejiklian said.
“Our community has demonstrated that by working together we can achieve positive results.
“The changes will allow NSW to fire up the economy, while allowing more personal freedoms.
“We will continue to closely monitor COVID-19 rates, especially community transmissions, to guide us towards easing further restrictions.”
