NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian has announced an easing of restrictions for Sydney’s COVID hotspots from tomorrow after the state recorded 1,083 new COVID-19 cases and 13 deaths.
The state’s local government areas (LGAs) of concern will from tomorrow be subjected to the same lockdown rules and stay-at-home orders as the rest of Greater Sydney.
This will means no limit on the duration of outdoor exercise and recreation, outdoor gatherings of up to five fully vaccinated people within a person’s LGA and the return of small weddings.
“From tomorrow, very pleasingly, all areas of concern will be equalised … everything will be the same across Greater Sydney,” Ms Berejiklian said.
“I want to take this opportunity to thank those communities in Western and south-western Sydney who have been doing it tougher so long.
“They have led the way in our vaccination rates, they have shown us the way, and what it means to be resilient and strong.”
On September 27, all public outdoor pools in NSW will reopen under a COVID-safe plan which is yet to be formalised.
