Dominique Perotet, Prime Minister of New South Wales (NSW), warned that cases of COVID-19 could increase ahead of new freedoms for fully vaccinated residents starting next week.
This is because Perotet has announced that NSW will submit a roadmap for resuming double vaccination due to faster vaccination rates than expected.
“From next Monday, that means more friends and family at home, more capacity at the hospitality facility, and more people attending the event. You can enjoy the greatness of NSW even more.” He writes on Twitter.
He warned that resumption would increase the number of COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations, saying “we need to learn to coexist with this pandemic.”
The relaxation of restrictions will be raised from December 1st to November 8th, allowing fully vaccinated residents to return to near normal life.
During the change, all settings except gym and dance classes may be fully operational again. There is no limit to the number of visitors to the house and the indoor pool will be reopened for all purposes.Dance is also permitted in entertainment venues such as nightclubs..
The new freedom applies only to fully vaccinated or exempt persons, NSW Government release Emphasis.
The current mask obligation is valid until 95% of people are vaccinated or until December 15th, whichever comes first.
This change is due to the fact that approximately 88% of residents over the age of 16 are fully vaccinated and nearly 94% have been vaccinated at least once.
Meanwhile, New South Wales Health Minister Brad Hazard said booster shots were imminent.
“Boosters are an important priority for moving forward, and we continue to work closely with the Commonwealth on the deployment of the COVID-19 vaccine. For those who have not yet been vaccinated, book as soon as possible. I would like to recommend it to you. “
According to Federal Health Minister Greg Hunt, senior care workers and residents first receive a third booster shot, followed by the rest of the general population.
