That announcement came when New South Wales reported low case numbers for a second straight day, an indication that social distancing and mass testing measures include Australia's recent outbreak in Sydney.
Head of State Gladys Berejiklian said the restrictions will resume after the holidays.

"Can I say very clearly that everything we have today goes back to the 27th and in between there are very modest changes and modest changes to take into account the fact that everyone has had a very difficult year."
Over the weekend, nearly a quarter of a million Sydney residents were ordered not to leave their homes for five days unless there was food or an emergency. Meanwhile, authorities rushed to contain an outbreak of nearly 100 cases.
If restrictions are relaxed, Greater Sydney residents will be able to accommodate 10 people in their home, with the exception of the northern suburbs, where residents can have up to five people on Christmas Eve, Christmas and Boxing Day as long as they are out of the area.
Australia has reported more than 28,000 coronavirus cases and 900 deaths since the global health crisis began.
