An updated NSW reopening roadmap has been revealed by Premier Dominic Perrottet that will see no caps on visitors to the home, indoor pools to reopen for all purposes and businesses move to density limits of one person for every two square metres from November 8 for the fully vaccinated.
But unvaccinated residents in New South Wales will have to wait until December 15 or until 95 percent vaccination rate in the state to enjoy the same freedoms.
Mr Perrottet said freedoms for unvaccinated residents that were due to be introduced on December 1 would now be pushed out.
Dominic Perrottet has announced two major changes to NSW’s reopening roadmap.
1. More freedoms for vaccinated residents to take effect on November 8.
2. Delaying freedoms for unvaccinated residents until December 15.
What are the new freedoms for NSW residents?
From November 8, if you are fully vaccinated you can enjoy the following freedoms:
– No cap on how many visitors you can have in your home
– Businesses will move to density limits of one person for every two square metres of floor space
– Indoor pools can reopen for all purposes (such as recreation)
– Nightclubs can reopen their dance floors
– Indoor halls can open for any purpose
– Outdoor gatherings of more than 1000 people will be required to have a COVID-safe plan
– Major stadiums can move to 100 per cent capacity
What about unvaccinated people? When can they enjoy the same freedoms?
Residents of NSW who are not fully vaccinated (including those who have only had one dose) will be given the same freedoms as the fully vaccinated on December 15.
Alternatively, the unvaccinated will be given the same freedoms as the fully vaccinated if NSW’s full vaccination rate hits 95 per cent prior to December 15.
Previously unvaccinated people were due to enjoy the same freedoms on December 1.
