For those who live outside the LGAs of concern, up to 5 fully vaccinated adults can engage in outdoor recreation in a person's LGA or within 5km of home. 

For those who live in the LGAs of concern, a household with all adults vaccinated will be able to engage in outdoor recreation (including picnics) for up to 2 hours within the existing rules (outside of curfew hours and within 5km of home).

This is in addition to the ability to engage in outdoor exercise. People who live alone in the LGAs of concern can gather with one other adult to participate in outdoor recreation within the same existing rules.
