Now that coronavirus restrictions have eased and small group catch-ups are allowed, Federal Member for Cowper Pat Conaghan is restarting mobile offices.
"Let us all enjoy the reward of flattening the COVID-19 curve responsibly by adhering to the Public Health Order and continuing social distancing and good hygiene practices," he said.
"For me, I am enjoying having a meal out with my family again and I am looking forward to restarting mobile offices.
"The key to the success of Australia's COVID-19 response has been the community.
"Everyone has played their part to stay at home, except for essential outings, and have taken on the raft of new activities that are 'the new normal'."
Under the NSW Government's Public Health Order, residents can gather outdoors in groups of 10, sit in cafes and restaurants with up to 10 patrons at any one time and invite five visitors to their home.
From Monday 1 June, this can be 50 patrons and premises must comply with the four square metre rule.
Mr Conaghan said these eased restrictions meant mobile offices and small group meetings could now go ahead with social distancing.
