Grab your mask again, folks

If you’re about to pop onto the ferry home this is just a quick reminder that masks are now mandatory. NRMA confirmed with us that from 4pm today they are mandating masks for their services, including the Manly Fast Ferry.

NSW Health issued the following advisory: From 4pm people in Greater Sydney & Blue Mtns must wear masks on public transport. Masks are strongly encouraged in indoor public venues. Avoid non-essential visits to aged care & disability facilities. If visiting, wear a mask & limit to 2 people per day.

Support quality local news

Manly Observer is an experiment in providing non-sensationalist hyperlocal news on Sydney’s Northern Beaches. We cover the big news across the LGA, but with a hyper focus on the Manly electorate encompassing Balgowlah, Seaforth, Freshwater, Brookvale and Curl Curl up to Dee Why. It is run by those living in the community for the benefit of an informed community. We care about an informed and connected community. That’s it. Simple. Thank you for your support in keeping quality local news alive!
