Active cases have also fallen sharply:
The NSW Government is currently providing a media update, which has outlined a “roadmap to freedom”.
By late October when 80% of NSW residents are fully vaccinated, those who are fully vaccinated:
- will be allowed to have up to 10 people in their home;
- will be allowed to take part in community sport; and
- will be allowed to go to cafes, pubs and restaurants.
Moreover, all venues will operate at a one person per 4 sqm indoors rule, and one person per 2 sqm outdoors rule. Regional travel around NSW will also be permitted.
By 1 December, once 90% of NSW residents are fully vaccinated, unvaccinated residents will be given the same privileges. NSW will effectively be open to all.
