NSW will go into shutdown mode over the next 48 hours, with the closing of non-essential services in an attempt to slow the spread of coronavirus.

Restaurants, pubs, gyms and entertainment venues are among businesses expected to close across NSW, Victoria and the Australian Capital Territory over the next two days.

NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian said supermarkets, petrol stations, pharmacies, convenience stores, freight and logistics, and home delivery will be among the many services that will remain open.

“Tonight I will be informing the National Cabinet that NSW will proceed to a more comprehensive shutdown of non-essential services,” Premier Berejilian said.

“Schools will be open tomorrow (Monday), though I will have more to say on this issue in the morning.”
