Not too bad, thanks for asking. Starting in NSW, the easing of more COVID restrictions has been brought forward as vaccination targets continue to be met ahead of time. From next Monday, fully vaccinated residents will be able to boogie down, have unlimited guests in their homes (as long as they’ve been double jabbed), and go to an event with a full-capacity crowd. For unvaccinated residents, the date when they can enjoy the same freedoms has been pushed back from 1 to 15 December, or when NSW hits 95% vaccination. Victorians also received some good news yesterday – the state recorded 989 new local cases – the first time the new daily case number has been below 1,000 since September. And in the nation’s capital, the ACT recorded 8 new cases yesterday as its outbreak peters out. Australia’s jab champs, 93.2% of the territory’s residents aged 12yo and over are fully vaxxed.
