Greater Sydney rules and restrictions

Published on 25 June 2021

COVID-19 Update

The NSW Government have recently increased a number of restrictions following events in the Greater Sydney area. These changes may affect your visit to CPAC.

Cessnock Performing Arts Centre (CPAC) is a registered COVID Safe venue. We have developed our COVID Safe plans in accordance with the strict guidelines set by the NSW Government, NSW Health, and Live Performance Australia. We are continually monitoring any changes to these recommendations and updating our plans accordingly to reflect current requirements.

In line with the current Public Health Order issued by the NSW Government and NSW Health, if you or a member of your party live or work in the City of Sydney, Waverley, Randwick, Canada Bay, Inner West, Bayside, and Woollahra local government areas, you cannot travel beyond metropolitan Sydney unless you have a reasonable excuse. If you or a member of your party live or work in these areas and are attending an upcoming event at CPAC, please contact the Box Office on (02) 4993 4266 to discuss your tickets. Our Box Office is open from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday.

If you or a member of your party live or work in Greater Sydney, you are still allowed to travel, however you must wear a face mask when you are indoors at non-residential premises. This will include all areas of CPAC.

If you or a member of your party have visited Greater Sydney in the last 14 days, you must wear a facemask when you are indoors at non-residential premises. Again, this will include all areas of CPAC. Greater Sydney includes Metropolitan Sydney, the Blue Mountains, Central Coast, Wollongong and Shellharbour Local Government Areas.

If you live or work outside of the areas listed above, masks are not currently mandatory. However, we strongly encourage the wearing of masks when visiting CPAC.

QR code sign in upon entry is mandatory for everyone entering the venue, and you will be required to show CPAC staff that you have signed in. If you do not have a smart phone please speak to CPAC staff on arrival who will assist you with signing in manually.
