After three beaches in Sydney’s south-east opened earlier this week, it looks like our most iconic beach could be about to do the same.
On Monday, Coogee, Maroubra and Clovelly beaches opened up for the purposes of exercise only after being closed amid the coronavirus pandemic and now it seems as though Bondi Beach could be next after electronic signs shows up overnight, according to news.com.au.
The signs read ‘surf and go access’ and ‘swim and go access’ and were spotted near Bondi Beach on Tuesday night.
Waverley Council has also reportedly been in talks with health authorities this week about reopening the beach.
It was closed on March 21 in order to maintain strict social distancing measures in a bid to slow the spread of the coronavirus.
The Waverly area has been identified as a hotspot for the virus.
This comes after the coronavirus death toll in NSW hit 31 overnight as a third elderly resident of a nursing home died in Western Sydney.
NSW reported six new cases on Tuesday taking the total to 2969, with 21 people in intensive care, after conducting more than 171,000 tests.
