NSW’s locked down gym junkies, restaurant/cafe goers, and those in need of a haircut got sorta-kinda answers yesterday on when they can get back to it. The state has been promised a “bright summer” by Premier Gladys Berejiklian, who outlined the “roadmap to freedom” as residents of Greater Sydney and surrounds enter their 12th week of lockdown tomorrow. At the current run rate, restrictions for fully vaccinated people could start to ease on 18 October – that’s the Monday after 70% of the eligible NSW population are expected to be double jabbed. If that target’s not hit, the date will be put back. In the here and now, parts of regional NSW will wake up sans restrictions tomorrow morning – including the Northern Rivers. Residents in that area are hoping that will bring about an easing of Queensland’s hard border.
