Residents of the Central Coast are being urged to carry out their recreation within government guidelines, particularly on the region's beaches, as changes are introduced in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Activities on all Central Coast beaches will now be restricted to exercise only including walking, running and surfing.

Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and Member for Terrigal Adam Crouch said changes to daily life were necessary.

"Last week the surf lifesaving season came to an abrupt end as a necessary way to stop COVID-19 from spreading, and today we are announcing that it is necessary for beach activities to be limited to exercise only," Mr Crouch said.

"We all must play a part in slowing the spread of COVID-19 by following these new restrictions and social distancing rules.

"Everyone on the Central Coast needs to be aware that NSW Police will be enforcing these restrictions with on-the-spot fines, particularly during the school holidays."

Central Coast Council Mayor Lisa Matthews said it was important the community adhere to all social restrictions in place.

"We all want to stay healthy. Exercise, sunlight and the outdoors contribute to our physical and mental wellbeing and it is important that we continue to be healthy during these stressful times," Mayor Matthews said.

"However we all need to obey the rules about exercise, physical distancing and number of people in groups, whether that is in parks and reserves, or on our beaches and bush tracks.

"Now is not the time to continue any group exercise activities, or meet friends for exercising, or meet to socialise on our beaches."

"This isn't forever, and it is really important that we obey the guidelines for everyone's safety," added Mayor Lisa Matthews.
