NSW reveals roadmap out of lockdown, unvaccinated people can attend places of worship

·

The NSW Premier has confirmed October 11 as the date lockdown restrictions will start easing in New South Wales.

At the 80 per cent rate, travel will resume through regional New South Wales and fully vaccinated people will be allowed to have 10 visitors at home. Community sport will also resume.

Restrictions will also be removed for fully vaccinated people attending weddings, funerals and hairdressers.

Unvaccinated people will only be allowed to attend places of worship.

A third stage has been set for December 1, when it’s expected the state will have reached 90 per cent double-dose vaccination.

On that date, unvaccinated people will be subject to the same rules as those who’ve been vaccinated.

Masks will no longer be required indoors, and nightclubs will re-open.

“I know people are counting down the minutes until we reach 70 per cent double dose and the freedoms that will provide, and today we are providing further certainty by announcing the 80 per cent roadmap and future settings,” NSW Premier, Gladys Berejiklian, said.

“Vaccination remains our ticket to freedom so we need to work even harder to get jabs in arms, to help stop the spread, minimise outbreaks and ensure people are protected when we open up.”

This comes as the state recorded 787 new locally acquired cases of COVID-19 in the 24 hours to 8pm last night. There were 12 deaths.
