Star Sydney to close due to seven-day Covid lockdown order

The Star Sydney

The Star Entertainment Group said its Sydney property will be closed, apart from limited hotel facilities, for seven days after the New South Wales government ordered a stay-at-home order due to rising Covid cases.

The government has imposed the order in four local government areas.

The Star will continue to pay staff during the seven day stay-at-home period. The stay-at-home orders follow the introduction of the 1 person per 4m2 rule, the mandatory wearing of masks, and the implementation of the ‘no drinking while standing’ rule pursuant to public health orders made on 23 June 2021.
