Groups of up to 100 people will be able to gather for Remembrance Day services across NSW after an exemption from coronavirus restrictions was approved.
The one-off exemption eases the current gathering restriction of 20 people when they're at community war memorials, provided they adhere to social distancing measures and have a COVID-19 Safety Plan in place.
Acting Veterans Minister Geoff Lee said Remembrance Day was a major event for both veterans and the broader community.
"Australians have paused to reflect and pay tribute on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month since 1918, so this is welcome news for our veterans community," Mr Lee said in a statement on Thursday.
RSL NSW acting president Ray James said it would be "particularly meaningful" for the veteran community to see Remembrance Day gatherings take place after Anzac Day commemorations were cancelled.
The exemption is in place for Remembrance Day Services held before November 12.
