Australian Insanity: New South Wales Requires Registration for Someone to Have a Visitor Over

New South Wales, a state in southeastern Australia, is requiring certain people who live alone and want to invite a visitor over to first register with the government.

On Monday the New South Wales health department announced in a tweet that single people living in a “local government area of concern” are allowed to have only one “COVID-19 nominated visitor,” also known as a “bubble buddy.” Both the resident and the visitor must register online.

“A nominated visitor is someone you can socialize with at your place of residence who: can only be one person, can visit you on more than one occasion, is not a nominated visitor for another person, and lives in or is staying within 5km of your home,” the registration page says.
