    Sydney family distraught after grandmother’s ashes were stolen from their home

UPDATE: NSW has recorded its second COVID-19 death in 24 hours on Sunday amid another spike in new cases.

There is mass confusion in southwest Sydney over what is considered an ‘essential worker’ after a raft of new restrictions were announced by NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian on Saturday.

Berejiklian tightened stay-at-home orders on Saturday, saying only emergency service and healthcare workers were allowed to leave the Local Government Areas of Fairfield, Canterbury-Bankstown and Liverpool.

But overnight, a list of 35 different exemption categories have been released, including political staff and data storage technicians. You can see the full list of exemptions below.

Residents are barred from leaving the three council areas while all but critical retailers across Sydney are closed as the city doubles down in its most serious battle yet with COVID-19.

NSW reported 111 new community cases of coronavirus on Saturday along with the death of a man in his 80s.

At least 80 per cent of cases have come from the city’s southwest.

And at least 29 of 111 were also infectious before going into isolation, a number authorities say is too high.

“I can’t remember a time when our state has been challenged to such an extent,” Premier Gladys Berejiklian said.

“Not a single one of these decisions was taken lightly.”
