Here at Time Out, we're all about helping Sydneysiders experience the best of our incredible city. At the same time, organisers of many large-scale events in Sydney are currently taking appropriate precautions in light of the COVID-19 outbreak and cancelling events in order to protect the public and those involved. Venues including major arts institutions are also temporarily closing.
Some of these precautions have now become mandated, as a result of the government's effective ban of mass public gatherings greater than 500 people across Australia as of March 13. To help keep you up to date, we've collated a list of all the major events that have been postponed or cancelled and venue closures due to the outbreak of coronavirus in Sydney. We'll endeavour to update this often as new announcements break.
