NSW tracks freedoms for fully vaccinated people, but bad news for those without COVID-19 jab

The NSW government has made significant changes to the state’s COVID-19 roadmap, which has created new freedoms for fully vaccinated people and delayed privileges for those who have avoided jab.

A series of restrictions to be scrapped for people who are fully vaccinated on December 1st will now be eased on Monday, November 8th.

Unvaccinated persons were also to be granted liberty on 1 December.

But they will now have to wait until December 15, or whatever date NSW reaches 95 percent double-dose coverage for people aged 16 and over.

In NSW, 93.6 percent of people aged 16 and up have had a jab, while 87.8 percent are fully vaccinated.

The changes are to be announced later today.

The initial freedoms for December 1 included the lifting of restrictions on the number of visitors to the home, informal outdoor gatherings, and no limits on hospitality environments.

On Tuesday, the state registered 173 new locally acquired COVID-19 cases and a further four deaths over the course of 24 hours to 8pm tonight.

There are now 333 people in the hospital, 72 of whom need ventilation.
