From Friday at 12:01 am, 30 people can sing in choirs and congregations, as long as they wear a mask and dance together at weddings.
Households may welcome 50 visitors, but stand-up drinking will remain prohibited in indoor locations until March 17.

Singing and dancing were banned on December 20 when NSW fought an outbreak of Covid-19 infections on Sydney’s northern beaches.
Restrictions on gym classes have also been relaxed and can now accommodate up to 50 people as long as the four square meter rule is followed.
Ms. Berejiklian said that relaxing the limits for family gatherings depended on people in NSW living in indoor locations at a social distance.
‘Make sure that no one comes into the house with complaints that has not been tested and ensure good ventilation and distance. Please be careful when you take this opportunity, ”she said.
NSW Health said one case of the virus was found in a returning traveler in an overnight hotel quarantine after 17,917 tests in the past 24 hours.
