The Berejiklian government will on Tuesday announce the measures which will also see stricter regulations placed on venues to collect contact details of patrons in case of an outbreak and around how the pubs are cleaned.

The new measures follow the outbreak at the Crossroads Hotel in Casula in Sydney's south-west which is now responsible for 21 coronavirus cases.

The changes relate only to pubs and will not apply to clubs, restaurants or The Star casino, which was fined $5000 on Monday after inspectors were told of groups mingling and people standing together while drinking on Saturday night.
