As communicated on Saturday, 10 July, the Health Minister has signed the Public Health (COVID-19 Temporary Movement and Gathering Restrictions) Amendment (No 4) Order 2021. The Order imposes additional restrictions, including that masks are required in indoor common property areas of residential premises in Greater Sydney (e.g. lifts and lobbies of apartment blocks) from today.
The posters, previously shared by the NSW Government, have now been updated
Effective from 13 July, face masks are required in indoor common property areas of residential premises in Greater Sydney (e.g. lifts and lobbies of apartment blocks) from today.
The NSW Government have updated the face mask posters they had previously shared in light of this.
Wear a mask in common areas – Greater Sydney https://www.health.nsw.gov.au/Infectious/covid-19/Documents/mask-in-common-areas-gs.pdf
Wear a mask in common areas – regional and rural NSW https://www.health.nsw.gov.au/Infectious/covid-19/Documents/mask-in-common-areas.pdf
The NSW Government website has also been updated to reflect these changes:
Existing hygiene posters for residential buildings have also been updated to ensure the resource suite has the same look and feel to reduce any issues with credibility:
Hygiene advice for people living in residential buildings https://www.health.nsw.gov.au/infectious/covid-19/Documents/residential-hygiene.pdf

Take care and help NSW stay Covid safe.
