Two adults and their children can now visit other households for social or care reasons in NSW after Premier Gladys Berejiklian announced the state is relaxing some social distancing rules.
These new measures come after the government's earlier promise to reassess restrictions at the end of each month. Plans for students to resume face-to-face schooling from May 11 have already been announced, while an increase in NSW retail activity is expected.
Those aged over 70 should continue to remain at home where possible.
Ms Berejiklian said the government will not limit the nature of visits and that social interaction was good for mental health.
In the Northern Territory, people can participate in outdoor activities with social distancing.
In other news, the ACT announced that it will become the first region in Australia to find no new cases of Coronavirus.
