PM Morrison reckons COVID-weary Aussies will be able to have “their lives back” in time for Christmas, “and that’s within the gift of governments and that’s a gift I’d like to see us give them.” As vaccination rates climb, he says that state and territory governments should “honour the arrangement” made with Aussies, “and that is once you get to 80% vaccination, it is very clear that you can start opening up.” As NSW hit 60% fully vaccinated yesterday, Premier Gladys Berejiklian said she would outline the state’s freedom roadmap this week, including how and when the unvaccinated people can emerge from lockdown. For now, it’s a big day for the state’s swimmers… As for the other state with a big lockdown, fully-vaxxed Victorians can do more from this week, and the Melbourne travel radius has been expanded.
