READ Border restrictions and lockdowns in NSW, Victoria, Queensland, SA

States and territories around the country have been thrust into lockdown as they fight a nation-wide out-breakout of COVID-19.
Parts of the Northern Territory and Queensland, NSW and Western Australia have stay-at-home orders in place for millions now to prevent the spread of the virus.
Here are the latest state-by-state rundown on border restrictions and lockdowns from around the country:

NEW SOUTH WALES

Anyone living in the Greater Sydney region is currently subject to a two-week stay at home order.
Residents are only able to leave their homes for essential reasons including grocery shopping, exercise, receiving medical care and essential work and education that cannot be done from home.
In regional NSW, only five visitors are allowed at a home at once, a 20 person limit applies to gyms and singing and dancing at indoor venues is not permitted.
Dancing is allowed at weddings for the bridal party only (no more than 20 people) and a maximum of 100 people are allowed at funerals.

Private household gatherings are currently capped at 15 people including dependants and public gatherings can occur with a maximum of 50 people.
Masks are required to be worn indoors and outdoors when social distancing is not possible.
Health Minister Martin Foley today said while the state had originally planned to wind back restrictions on July 1, allowing full capacity at theatres and 85 per cent capacity at stadiums, the easing had been postponed.
“We are not increasing restrictions, as other states around the Australian mainland are, but what we are doing is holding them where they are,” Mr Foley said.
The two LGAs will remain in full lockdown for a further 24 hours as contact tracers work to identify any new exposure sites.
The lockdown will end at 6pm today as planned for all other LGAs including Noosa, Sunshine Coast, Ipswich, Logan, Redlands, Gold Coast, Scenic Rim, Lockyer Valley, Somerset and Townsville.
