I could've gone to Canberra Classic, but it got cancelled. In Sydney, only schools with confirmed cases are closed and also, no more than 100 people can be in the same room, so it removes all the camps and excursions while school is going ahead as normal, and still encourages students to attend school if they are not sick.

I think it is over 10 people in the entire U.S.
There is no set policy for the US. The federal government can make recommendations but can't ban gatherings because of the First Amendment. Various states have issued orders, with 10 being the most common limit, but they aren't exactly enforcing them. That's because of two things: 1) they don't want the negative publicity of arresting people simply for gathering together and; 2) they are afraid of the inevitable legal challenges (on First Amendment grounds) that would follow if they do arrest people.

Yes, anything that they say is a recommendation, not a law.

True'ish...But if people actually cared for others then themselves in a time like this and thought of the better good (which sadly many people do not) then this would not even be necessary to consider. And if it came to it, I do not think certain people would care about the "negative publicity" if what they are enforcing is for the whole of he USA and good and more often then not, they have to do it since those people that blow off warnings are acting childlike and an "adult" has to step in.
