According to the news, lockdown is easing across Australia and will start to be lifted in NSW at the end of this week. Aussies did a good job flattening the curve! Changes will begin to take place from Friday. Life will gradually return to normal. Many have been severely disadvantaged by the lockdown and some will have a hard time recovering. People will slowly resume their usual activities and be back on the road.
From Friday, cafes, restaurants, playgrounds, and outdoor pools will reopen but with a limited number of people (10 allowed) to go in at the same time. NSW will maintain a ban on regional travel for now. Some schools are reopening and others are partially opening, so there will be expected traffic on the roads once again. Other trips made will be going to the banks, groceries, and other nearby places. The plan is to reach step 3, which is a total reopening in July, but the time frame and dates are yet to be announced.

All non-essential travel should be deferred while social distancing rules are still in place. Strict handwashing routines at all times is very important and avoiding crowded places.
