New freedoms for fully vaccinated NSW residents, NSW-Qld border bubble reinstated


The New South Wales government has unveiled new freedoms for residents who are fully vaccinated from COVID-19 to begin from next Monday.

From the 13th of September:

  • Those who live outside the LGAs of concern, up to 5 fully vaccinated adults can engage in outdoor recreation in a person’s LGA or within 5km of home. Children under 12 will not be counted in this total.
  • Those who live in the LGAs of concern, a household with all adults vaccinated will be able to engage in outdoor recreation (including picnics) for up to 2 hours within the existing rules (outside of curfew hours and within 5km of home). This is in addition to the ability to engage in outdoor exercise.
  • People who live alone can gather with one other adult to participate in outdoor recreation within the same existing rules.

NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian also announced that the state’s daily 11:00 am COVID-19 press conferences will cease from Monday.

Instead, NSW Health staff will deliver video updates and politicians will “intermittently hold press conferences as required”.

It comes as NSW records 1,542 new cases – the highest daily tally for an Australian jurisdiction – and 9 deaths in the 24 hours to 8:00 pm yesterday.
