Coincidentally, so too are many other people and places.
The Blue Mountains.
Plus all of the folk we know and love who live there.
Not to mention both Western Australia and South Australia are out of bounds to NSW for holidays and hair cuts alike.
Singing in a church is out.
Dancing in a club is also out.
Drinking while standing up in a public place is also not on right now.

Face masks are mandatory for those aged 12-plus without a medical exemption (that includes you Barnaby!).
Living in the border bubble NSW types could never risk not having a face mask in the glove box anyway in case our day went south, geographically.
The four metre square rule is also back in for indoor venues.
On the bright side, cinemas and theatres are still open on the Border during the school holidays.
With reduced capacity, we just need to book ahead.
If the global pandemic has trained us in anything, it's booking ahead to eat out or go to a show.
Walk-ins are a thing of the past.
COVID vaccinations are very much in amid the coronavirus outbreak.
A little more than 7 per cent of the population, or about 1.46 million Australians, are now fully vaccinated against COVID-19, having received two doses of the coronavirus vaccine.
Federal Health Minister Greg Hunt's office says almost 5.9 million of the eligible 20.6 million Australians have received at least one dose of the vaccine.
Now National Cabinet has mandated vaccinations for aged care workers.
