In a press conference on Tuesday, NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet announced that the state is bringing forward new freedoms for fully vaccinated people and delaying them for those who remain unvaccinated. The restrictions, which are due to be lifted for people fully inoculated on December 1, will now be relaxed on November 8.
Sydney will lift more COVID-19 curbs for vaccinated residents ahead of schedule next week, while delaying freedoms it has promised for unvaccinated Sydneysiders as officials aim to boost inoculations.
Freedoms for unvaccinated people have been pushed back to either 15 Dec or when NSW hits 95% double dose vaccinations, whichever comes first. Restrictions for those who are vaccinated will ease from 8 Nov, with unlimited visitors in homes and dancefloors to reopen.
What people are saying?
Dom Perrottet We’re bringing forward our reopening roadmap for the double-vaccinated. From next Monday, it means more friends and family at home, more capacity for hospitality venues, more people at events – more enjoying what makes NSW great.
Andrew White The apartheid being practiced against the unvaccinated is very disturbing – and I’m saying this as a doubly vaccinated person. Vaccine rates are so high, is this discrimination really necessary?
