Community diary | Take note of fine change for house gatherings

ALL attendees at private gatherings above the 20-visitor limit at NSW homes now risk being slapped with a $1000 fine under new Public Health Order amendments. Previously, only the organiser of a gathering was liable to receive a fine if the number of people at the premises breached the Public Health Order but now every person in attendance will be held responsible. The total number of visitors includes adults and children, but members of the household are not counted among the 20-visitor limit. The NSW Government says the aim is to ensure community safety ahead of an expected increase in gatherings with Christmas and end-of-year festivities.
